Male Butterfly in the House and Herons;

In the evening of on 22nd my husband spotted Male Indian Fritillary, before going weekly practice of his band. Wow, what a COINCIDENT male version as well.  Here is the female version of my post. He rushed to fetch the net and handed him to me. He went out telling me "make sure that after taking some pictures, release him". 
       I think he is not in vigorous condition as he even perched on my finger etc.
At first, he flew to the curtain. Too bright...

His button like eyes amazed me.

I really appreciate his short visit to my house and my husband's help♪

*First Blue Heron and Egrets*
I was thinking there would be only Egret around my area and would never be able to see Blue Heron. Lucky that I could spot this handsome fellow♪
Might be a family was enjoying lunch;
I love seeing their long neck, beak and flexibility :-)

Thank you SO much for stopping by, I'll see you soon;


  1. Hello Miyako, Your butterfly visitor is pretty. And the Egret are beautiful. You may have more than one kind of Egret there. The beak color is different and I see the yellow feet of the Snowy Egret on one of them. The Heron is gorgeous.. Great critter post! Thank you so much for linking up to my critter party. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Such a beautiful butterfly and you were very lucky it stayed still to get such good photos. Great photos of the heron and egret too. Greetings from Western Australia.
