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