A Tsumagurohyomon (Argyreus hyperbius) butterfly (female) in Kita-kamakura
In the lucid sunlight of September which brightens up the beauty of this world, a radiantly colored butterfly is sucking nectar from a thistle flower wholeheartedly.
While gently fluttering from flower to flower, this fragile butterfly lives her short life without any doubt as if she knew her own fate.
Autumn has just arrived here and begun to deepen gradually. When this brilliant butterfly disappears from view, the colorful flowers and leaves of autumn will again appear one after another in the quiet gardens of Zen.
