You are beautiful!!

I may think it was ridiculous but yet fun to dance with a bat, to stand in its way, to flash and to murmur my discomfort repeatedly. The bat might not have the same opinion. I might have disturbed its routine, hurt its feeling or confused its echolocation. I hope that there won't be any ill feeling, and it is not a Vampire Bat. We are friends. Aren't we?

Anyhow, as long as I emerged from the jungle, I had to start with a new journey, and a new episode of story.

The sun was blazing down. This Chocolate Grass Yellow seemed to seek asylum in the flower embassy, but for its head only, like an ostrich.

I always have my own thought: I should have as many shots as I wished since it could not see me. I took numerous shots, and I inched closer and closer.

Out of a sudden, the butterfly turned to me. "Hey, though I can't see you, I am able to feel you." And again, we made friends.

I went ahead with my shooting. It continued with what was supposed to be done. The sun was blazing down, it brightened up my day.

If you ask what is grass yellow, I shall tell you it is a transparent yellow.

Beauty is essence which can be inhaled and the person shines and sparkles with internal beauty. huh!

That's beautiful! A relationship like this is worth to die for..

I'm glad the butterfly let you take so many good pictures and yet remained friends. I think you like to hike in the jungle because you meet so many friends there.

Frieda said...

You took some wonderful pictures of your friend!

You plant some lime SUNG KAM trees, you will get beautiful bluish black butterflies. Then you can have many retakes of you "Butterfly, Don't fly away butterfly" dance. The best one, you post on Y Tube.

Very stunning photos...I loved these!

Ann said...

When you retire, and want to dance with fish, I have the expertise of how to keep a fish pond, authority from Singapore Chinese TV. LOL

In the hot months, you make some sort of a broom and hit the water. This is the SAN BA way of aerating the water.

You see the fish jump up to avoid being hit by you. So you both dance.

I am so lucky for not being a heavy drinker after seeing your fungus.

Cate:
I began July with my son birthday too.

Icy BC:
Really, I have to check it out with my friend Grass Yellow.

George:
Yes, I do make friend every time I go hiking, just like you make friends with the waterfalls.

Frieda/The retired One:
Shhhh....

Ann:

"Flower Embassy" -I love that! Nice photos (as usual)!

Life Ramblings said...

i'm not very good in taking pics of butterflies. They have good vision and will often fly away long before I get anywhere near, close enough to photograph them.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Yes, he is beautiful!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Your friendship with these critters is to be savored and cherished. Your photos today are exquisite, Rainfield.

Ratty said...

I greatly admire your photos of this butterfly. I try for some as good as these, but mine are never quite as good. And I have some very similar flowers where I go.

AVCr8teur said...

You have made so many friends in the jungle. They must all be familiar with the sound of your footsteps and camera clicks to pose for you.

CH said...

What a beautiful yellow.

Ayie said...

Stephanie said...

I feel your sparkle with every beat of my heart!

Harumi said...

Great pics Rain. The butterfly has a very unusual but beautiful name. I wish the ones over here could sit still for long too, cuz I could never seem to snap them. =D

Cheers for the compliment. Actually I don't really know how to do build my own modules unfortunately. What I'll do at some point in the near future is take the site to another town in the UK and when I do that I'll build a module for it. I'm still kind of learning the ropes when it comes to Drupal.
