A picturesque view of the rice paddies...

I remembered an Amyism, fairtly recent:

We were driving back from somewhere, past some summer rice paddies flowing with waving bright green rice plants, and Amy, looking out the window, sawa a beautiful white crane, Japan's elegant national bird, standing in one field.

"What's that bird, Mum, the power-shovel one?"

Power-shovel being Japanese for a digger, and a common construction vehicle, along with the CRANE
