A Gift For My Girlfriend

This is the gift for my girlfriend’s 20th birthday. I collected these butterflies carefully during my summer holiday in remote Yunnan. Then we ordered a frame and collected some plant material. Last night when the first snow of 2009 was falling outside, we finished the mounting in a classroom. Here it is!

The species are: Euploea mulciber (the smaller blue and black one); Byasa polyeuctes (the black swallowtail); Thauria lathyi (the black and yellow one); Idea leuconoe (the white spotted one)

    Thank you Joan. I intended not to tell her about the gift so that I could give her a surprise. But she had known it somehow. Nevertheless, it is more joyful to order the frame and mount the butterflies together. Indeed she's going to treasure it up!

    呵呵,咋俩博客的性质不同嘛。我觉得你的博客更像日记本,重在记录自己的心情和想法,别人不好多加评论什么。而我写博客的本意就是给别人看的,所以设计上和内容上都在迎合来访者的口味。Blogger里的中文读者本来就不多,更别说在大陆被和谐以后了...
    其实你那里蛮有意思的,要加大宣传力度哦!
