【Stay safe before departure, Lemon butterfly (Papilio demoleus), 無尾鳳蝶,行前安全】

In a little while, the butterfly boys who have just emerged from pupae will set out to travel. I put them on the high leaves, as far away as possible from their natural enemies (geckos, spiders, ants...). And pray that no birds will visit my balcony at this moment.

再過一會,我剛破蛹的蝴蝶男孩們就要出發去旅行了。我把他們放在高高的構樹葉上,儘可能遠離他們的天敵們(壁虎,蜘蛛,螞蟻...)。並祈禱這時不要有小鳥來拜訪我的陽台。

The twelfth lemon butterfly (Papilio demoleus) was put on the high leaf of a paper mulberry (Broussonetia papyrifera) on my balcony in Taichung, Taiwan. 我把第十二隻無尾鳳蝶放在陽台構樹高高的葉子上。

He didn't seem to want to take off yet, and stopped there quietly. 他似乎還不想起飛,安靜地停在那裡。

I want to put the thirteenth butterfly on a leaf, too. Unexpectedly, he suddenly flew up and disappeared from my balcony.

我想把第十三隻蝴蝶也放在葉子上。沒想到他突然就飛起來,從我的陽台上消失了。

I put the fourteenth butterfly on the leaf. 我只好把第十四蝴蝶放到葉子上。

Then he spread his wings to show off to me. 然後他展開他的翅膀向我炫耀。

Yes, according to the pattern of the wings, he is a boy. 沒錯,根據翅膀的花紋,他是個男生。

Then before noon, they left my balcony one by one. Don't cry, I just completed the task of cultivating butterflies. Everything is so beautiful. There is nothing to be sad.

然後在中午前,他們陸續離開我的陽台了。別哭,我剛剛完成育蝶的任務。一切是那麼美好。沒有什麼好傷心的。

to be continued... (未完待續...)
