Biodiversity in a ricefield area

One does not have to go far to find an amazing array of biodiversity, even in a big city. This post however, contains some images of animals just about ten minutes cycling from where I live. These animals are not always big. Egrets can be fairly large, but spiders and dragonflies are not. This particular ricefield area, aside from having this large array of species, also provides rest and food to bird species that makes yearly migrations from north to south and vice versa. It mainly concerns waders such as the Common Greenshank (Tringa nebularia), the Black-winged Stilt (Himantopus himantopus) or the Common Snipe (Gallinago gallinago). They are included in the images below.
