purple gem...

This is an only photo I could take when I saw this butterfly, which is called "murasakishijimi"(narathura japonica). It flew away in a twinkle. So I am not necessarily satisfied with the result but hoping you will like the blue wings ....

The photo below (comment section) is the one I uploaded before. I had not been able to identify it then but I think it is (may be) the same butterfly.

This butterfly is said to winter so it may be seen to bask in the sunshine in winter.
