Aosuji-ageha (blue-triangle) butterfly: Kencho-ji
Like a graceful daydream flitting in the bright sunlight, the blue-striped summer butterfly suddenly appeared from nowhere in the air and alighted on the small white flower before my eyes.
In an instant, it sucked nectar from the flower while beating its wings and then quickly fleeted from one flower to the next for eagerly seeking nectar. Immediately after doing so, it swiftly flied high up and vanished into thin air.
Summer butterflies are beginning to fly around here to let me realize that the season of the dazzling sun has just arrived.
