on a walk (or two)

minoo51311 Caught this butterfly, Nagasaki Ageha or Papilio memnon while I was walking.

Usually butterflies are way to quick, but this one was mesmerized with a candy wrapper or something, so I had a pretty good chance to get a picture of it.

In Hawaii, big black moths are not good omens, but in Japan, these black butterflies are huge, quite common and not thought to be good or bad omens.

shichifuku Some doughnuts from Shichifuku.

These doughnuts were made with soy milk and were fried in menjitsuyu (cotton seed oil).

Caramel & Earl Grey.

Too bad these tasted like oil rather than doughnuts.

momiji Momiji Bakery's chocolate danish. I liked that this was topped with a lot of chocolate chips.

More food than sights on my walks this time around...what have you been seeing on your walks?

What a beautiful butterfly! I haven't seen anything like that in Hawai'i or anywhere else. Will have to look more carefully next time I am home :)

Very cool butterfly and the chocolate Danish looks amazing. The chocolate chips on top would be the clincher for me.

So cool you were able to get the butterfly shot. I had no idea the black months were a bad omen here.

K and S said...

Not to freak you out Deb in Hawaii, but if you see one on your screen door or something, it is a bad omen that someone may die or get hurt.

Take care.
