大型でとても美しい色彩のオオミズアオ。見た瞬間に、とても惹きつけられる、不思議な魅力のある昆虫です。比較的普通に見られる蛾で、山の公衆便所の壁などでも見る事が出来ます。しかし、美しい場所にはなかなか止まりません。しかも、昼間に見ると、なぜか拍子抜けした色に見えてしまいます。そのまま写真を撮っても、その場で感じる美しさを伝える事が出来ません。
Emperor moth(Actias artemis aliena) is a large-scale, very beautiful color moth. It is an insect that has the magical charm to which is dressed very much momentarily at the time of saw the appearance. In the moth thought that Emperor moth is comparatively usual, it is possible to see also with the wall etc. of a public lavatory in the mountain. However, Enperor moth does not readily settle on the beautiful place. The discolored color shows it for some reason, besides, when I watch Enperor moth in the day. Oneself cannot convey beauty to feel on the spot even if I just take a photograph.

どうにかして、何か表現できないかと思って四苦八苦した写真がこれです。被写体としては、ほとんど動かないので、しばらく撮影させてもらい、写真の勉強をさせてもらいました。
I had a hard time whether I cannot express this photograph well. Because I hardly moved for a subject, I would photograph it for a while and studied the photograph.
