Kuroageha (Papilio protenor) butterfly: Kita-kamakura

In a split second, a black butterfly silently quivered above the ruby-red flowers of Red Horse-chestnut to seek nectar.

In the fragrant air and golden sunlight of May, a flower invites a butterfly to fill its role of life and a butterfly visits a flower to collect nectar for its breeding and existence.

In the calm stream of the changing seasons, such a precious and irreplaceable moment of life is constantly reiterating in hushed silence in front of my eyes.

Thank you for your kind comment.

In Kita-kamakura, because of the rapid rise of temperature, summer butterflies have already begun appearing here and there. I am looking forward to encounter such beautiful butterflies again this year.

July 5, 2023 kuroageha appeared in our garden in Kamakura, in Nikaido no Enodenbujoji. Beautiful.

It is one of the joys of summer to witness a beautiful Papilio protenor fluttering in the dazzling light.
