A Kicho (Eurema hecabe) butterfly in Engaku-ji

A Kicho (yellow butterfly) is busily and brightly flitting around the vivid magenta flowers of Miyagino-hagi (Lespedeza thunbergii) to earnestly seek sweet floral nectar.

Flowers bloom and butterflies fly to visit flowers.

The garden of zen is the beautiful microcosm of life. In this minute cosmos, various kinds of small living things intently and cyclicly live and die according to the secret law of the universe without knowing it.
