A Monki-ageha (Papilio helenus) butterfly in Kencho-ji
In the sparkling sunshine, I saw a black swallowtail butterfly quivering above the bright vermilion flowers of trumpet creeper.
In the height of summer, when colorful flowers decreases in number, various beautiful butterflies flit around above the flourishing vegetation of this lively season and fascinate us deeply with their graceful figures and elegant dances in the air.
I always find a hidden meaning of pure spiritual freedom in these butterflies, which are innocently fluttering about in the clear blue sky.
