Saturday Snapshot: A Butterfly in Japan

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mommy.



A tiny butterfly lands on clover on a sidewalk in Japan. Caught last week on our morning walk to the coffee shop in Aichi, Japan.

Just found out from Cindy Mead, an expert on moths, that the butterfly is a Pale Grass Blue, native to Asia.

Great picture!


We have such interesting looking Butterflies around here. I should pull out my field guides and try to do some identifying.

This is one picture you should have framed.
It reminds me of when I was in Japan and our bus came across some beautiful trees in bloom and we all reached for our cameras. They were fake and we all laughed. Pretty though and I still remember them.

Harvee said...

Leona, that's so funny! Wonder if this was in a park. Can't imaging fake trees in bloom - staged!

Harvee said...

Brian, show us some pictures if you take any. We are hurting for butterflies in these parts.
