Saw one of these today at the pool......got to hold it more then once it was amazing. It was a male. I had to save the poor thing from drowning but it was always heading back for the water.
Apparently it liked the water. Also saw these:
♥ Cabbage White
♥ Dragonfly of some sort
Seeing all of them made my day. And I learned something too. No true yellow jacket has orange antennae. And this "yellow jacket" had orange antennae.
Never knew that! Thanks Bugguide!

There's so much on these but I think that this is one of the best sites I've found that has decent info on the butterfly ( no offense Wikipedia but you're not always reliable ).
Has pics too along with some kick ass close ups:
Click here you know you want too
God bless that site. Again this is for Raito. Also the photo is from the results from Googling the beauty. And it's funny how they call them the Japanese Emperor when it has the colors of our flag!
They should rename it! :P
