Gold-Leaf Folding Screen

Gold-leaf folding screen
Calligraphy group "Genyu 玄遊" had a party celebrating the publication of 500th monthly magazine. Gold-Leaf Folding Screen is usually decorated at the formal ceremonial occasions.
My husband band was invited to perform some music for the occasion at the hotel.  (picture page)

Lady members of the Calligraphy group danced with the popular music called Koi-Dance

which is the theme song of the drama "Running away is a shame, but useful".

*Chestnut Tiger Butterfly;  "asagimadara,アサギマダラ*
It's time we can see Chestnut Tiger Butterfly at the hillside of the Ryuou-mout. 
This particular butterfly come to Japan around May and travels Japanese archipelago to live the temperature about 23.  The flower they love "Boneset; hiyodoribana,ヒヨドリバナ "  is cultivated and blooming now.  Unfortunately, unlike last year I could see only few of them.

*Cyrestis thyodamas and Fritillary*

*These birds were from early this year which I haven't posted*

Pigeon and Dusky Thrush.  Picture is not well-taken, but I was happy to find Japanese Green Woodpecker at that time♪

I DO hope you all are enjoying comfortable season.  
Autumn Rain is falling;  After taking a bit rest, I WILL start visiting you☆☆☆
