Butterflies / 蝴蝶


Every June is the blooming period for nectar plants in Yangmingshan, Taipei, so butterflies swarm the mountain paths. I am tempted by a strong urge to see the fantastic scene of colorful fairies scattering the whole sky. 


   In fact, there are way more than butterflies. Caterpillars, ladybugs, spiders and bees are all part of the party. Everyone eats, plays and rolls happily among blossoming plants. 


   Butterflies can't stop kissing flowers. Better yet, the kisses are sweet and filling! 


   Based on some research, blue-spotted butterflies fly south in autumn to spend winter in the Ryukyu Islands or Taiwan. Next summer, their offsprings move back north. Certain blue-spotted butterflies tagged in Taiwan were once discovered in Japan. 


   It's amazing that a small butterfly can accomplish the grand journey that covers 2,000 kilometers. We are all here to be their companions on a short leg of their trip, but how lucky we are!
