This painting presents four wagtails frolicking between the branches of a peach tree. Flowering plants such as bleeding hearts and common dayflowers over the hill on the waterfront add lyricism to the spring scenery. In the Classic of Poetry (詩經, Ch. Shijing), wagtails are described as birds representing brotherly affection.
