Description: This print is from the set 'Kacho Fugetsu (Beauties of Nature)' which consists of 20 Hiroshige design prints in ōtanzaku format published by Yuyudo in the 1970s, produced by the best engravers and printers at that time.

The poem - 白鷺下田千點雪 黄鴬上樹一枝花 - can perhaps be rendered: "White herons fly low across the fields, like a thousand flakes of snow; Yellow birds perch on the tree, like flowers clustered on a branch" (translation by the MFA).

The feathers of the heron are done with kara-zuri embossing.


There are a few small chiri (mulberry bark scraps) in the bird body area, and a small mark at the right margin of this print.
