A Tsumagurohyomon (Argyreus hyperbius) butterfly in Tokei-ji

In the clear sunlight of a fine afternoon, I saw a female Tsumagurohyomon butterfly brightly and eagerly flying around blooming cosmos flowers in search for floral nectar.

Soon colorful butterflies will disappear from view inconspicuously, leaving a prominent role in beautifying the garden of zen to the flaming colors of the autumnal leaves.
