SCENE in the pen. 026

“Unfamiliar butterfly”

A butterfly that I often saw from spring, were perched on the leaves of the doku-dami (chameleon plant). Several others were on the ground. They were “Ishigake-cho.” Ishigake means Japanese stone wall. The pattern of wings is likened to that shape. This butterfly is not known to be this peninsula. They probably entered the peninsula from south.  [JUNE 2021]
