New Airplane and a Butterfly;

*Star Flyer* 
From this Oct. this aircraft called 'starflyer' of Japanese Airline company started to operate between our city and Tokyo. Quite different from ANA and JAL, its corporate color is black.  I missed the chance to post about this new black and white aircraft in Oct.
      Pictures I took from observation deck;
I failed to take a good picture of taking off...
View of the front of the airport from the deck;



*Lestes temporalis 'オオアオイトンボ'*
Last Oct. we found this butterfly perching on the nandina tree outside of the kitchen. 
After I took a few pictures, my husband wished to know the size of it :-)


 Linking this post to,   
        "Good Fences", "Saturday's critters" and "Scenic Weekends",

                             Thank you very much for stopping by;

Miyako, that is a very sleek looking airplane. Your insect is very interesting, almost couldn't fine it in the picture, as it is so well blended into the background. Have a special day....hugs from Texas.

How interesting to paint the airplane black. I guess it distinguishes its company from all the other airline companies.

That is very handsome looking airplane! I don't think I've seen airplane in black color. Looks like inside is black and white, too. Love it!
And this is such a beautiful tombo! Have a lovely day, Miyako san :-)

What a snappy looking airplane, the colors really stand out. Great shots. I love the curvy roof line of the airport.- Very pretty Dragonfly as well.

Jane said...

such a luxurious color for the plane!

Dearest Miyako,
The aircraft is an Airbus... but the Airline is the Japanese StarFlyer.
The color does not make a big difference as the plane is mainly up in the sky where it is below freezing!
Lovely photo of the dragonfly and it was a small one according to the spot you showed.
Hugs,
Mariette

Air New Zealand has just recently done their planes in black and white too. One is mostly black with the silver fern on it and the other has more white. They do look effective don't they?
I like your photos of the dragonfly.

The black color gives that plane a sleek, aerodynamic appearance. Lovely shot of the dragonfly.

Awesome airplane and pretty butterfly!

Jen said...

I like the look of the new planes. Very elegant. I am hesitant to take photos in airports here, because sometimes security will give you a hard time.

Gunilla Bäck said...

The black airplane makes me think of a killer whale, it looks very modern. The wavy airport cover is interesting. I love dragonflies, I like the metallic green color.
