|This butterfly(Polygonia c-aureum) appears several times a year. Usually in Tokyo, the last generation which appears in October and November hibernates the winter. In autumn, we see many imagoes of this butterfly are gathering flowers or rotten fruits to survive forthcoming cold winter. Now in Tokyo the spring comes near day by day. In warm day, some butterflies become active again and enjoy the sunlight. When the butterfly is basking, we can come close to it. |
I feel that I meet an old friend after a long absence.
