* Had a call from Mr. Shimada whom we met at the Ryuou-Mt. *
When my husband saw the marking, he said it must be really rare to have a shot like this. And he contacted city to know his phone number to report it.
Through the first phone-call to him, I learned his mail address and sent the picture. We had a return call from him this morning and he said he kindly contacted to the Marking-Net to check.
1. Marking was put at the Yatsugadake-peak in Nagano-pref.
2. He couldn't ID the organization of "TM" which put the marking.
3. Date Aug. 12th. 230th marking there.
*Information from him* This butterfly starts flying from Taiwan around April about 100㎞a day. The poison in honeydew of "hiyodoribana,ヒヨドリバナ " works as pheromone to draw female. The number of the female is smaller than the male's.
This year, he put markings for 20~30 of this butterflies with elementary-school children. All of them was the male he said.
We appreciate those information from Mr. Shimada very much♪
So sorry for my absence Visiting You Soon.
Have a nice coming weekend♡♡♡
PS; I have a next year's calendar gift on Oct. 8th post, still works :-)
