【The only girl, Lemon butterfly (Papilio demoleus), 無尾鳳蝶,唯一的女生】

This is my sixteenth butterfly (the fifth butterfly in this summer), and is the only girl among the five. She emerged from the pupa on that same wonderful weekend. The difference from the previous one is that she emerged from the pupa at night.

這是我的第十六隻蝴蝶(今年夏天第五隻蝴蝶),也是五隻當中唯一的女生。她在同一個美好的周末破蛹而出。與上一隻不同的是,她在晚上破蛹的。

I let her climb on my finger, too. 我一樣讓她爬上我的手指。

Then she spread her wings to show off to me. 然後她展開她的翅膀向我炫耀。

Yes, according to the pattern of the wings, she is a girl. 沒錯,根據翅膀的花紋,她是個女生。

Two years ago (2018), when I was photographing the pupa of the Mottled emigrant butterfly (Catopsilia pyranthe), I also took the picture with Xiao-Er who was curious about it. I like that photo very much. It is the #4 posted in my previous (110th) report.

Xiao-Er was the fourth cat in my home. She was a lovely and gentle girl. A few months (2019) after the photo was taken, she left us because she was old and sick. I glad that I took that photo at that time. For a sick old cat, the butterfly pupa was a rare gadget that attracted her and made her happy.

After my sixteenth butterfly successfully emerged from the pupa this year, I suddenly wanted to show it to my fifth cat. He is called Da-Mao, the twin brother of Xiao-Er. His age is old and his kidneys are not good.

I wanted to take a photo of him with the butterfly. Oh no, he felt full after dinner and was already asleep... Forget it, let it go.

兩年前(2018年),我在拍攝水青粉蝶的蛹時,也讓好奇的小二一起入鏡。我很喜歡那張照片,就是在我之前的第110號報告裡貼的第四張照片。

小二是我家的第四隻貓。她是可愛溫馴的女生。拍完照片後的幾個月(2019年),她因為年紀大,又生病,於是離開了我們。我很慶幸當時拍了那張照片。對一隻生病的老貓而言,蝴蝶的蛹是難得吸引她,逗她開心的一個小玩意兒。

今年我的第16隻蝴蝶成功破蛹後,我忽然想展示給我家的第五隻貓看。他叫做大毛,是小二的雙胞胎弟弟。他年紀也大了,同時腎臟不太好。

我想也拍張他跟蝴蝶的合照。噢,不妙,他晚餐吃飽了,已經就定位睡著了...。算了吧,隨它去吧。

His name is Da-Mao. He is sleeping after the meal. Hush, don't wake him up. 他叫做大毛。他吃飽飯後在睡覺。噓,別吵醒他。

Summer is the season of butterflies. I have a beautiful summer this year. Hope your summer was as wonderful as mine.

夏天是蝴蝶的季節。今年我有一個美麗的夏天。希望你的夏天像我的一樣美好。

Thanks, Heike.
The balcony observer has many photos of cats, just as he has many photos of balcony animals and plants. However, because the balcony observer’s cats are kept in the living room or kitchen, not on the balcony, he usually does not post photos of the cat on PB. But the occasional smuggling exception does not seem to be harmful. Glad you like this photo.cat

It makes one wonder if a butterfly can sense how one feels and thinks about them. I think these feel very comfortable with you.
