[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Vanessa cardui seems to be one of the butterflies that has the widest distribution in the world.
I can see very well also in Tokyo suburbs.

Japanese name is "hime-aka-tateha"

Hello Yasushi!

Very nice portrait of Vanessa cardui. Good colours, composition and light. Sharp wings, well visible details on body of butterfly. This insect is also common in my country.
