                         Aeginetia indica is parasitic on Japanese pampas grass .

  3. Wow, this is fascinating: the concept of trenching and how the insects survive on the leafs. Love the selection of images, the flowers mixed with the temple. Very interesting indeed for someone who hasn't been to Japan.

  6. 深大寺にはよく行きましたので、懐かしいです。”深大寺そば”はまだ有名なのでしょうか。深大寺といえばおそばと結びついてしまいます。クロコマノチョウの幼虫、正面からみたら可愛いですね。特にイワダレソウが珍しくて可愛い花と思います。

       イワダレソウ、海岸に咲く花の様です。
