Actias artemis aliena
Emperor moth

Photograph by Baikada (ばいかだ)

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.

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.

Sober existence

Meles meles
Eurasian badger

Photograph by Baikada (ばいかだ)


The Japanese does not know badger (Meles meles) very much. It is said to be a badger “Mujina” appearing in the Japanese old tale well. The eurasian badger resembles a raccoon-dog closely in an appearance. It is likely to be recognized as a raccoon-dog though unexpected and the appearance are seen. The eurasian badger is called “Ana-guma” in japan. Japanese mean is bear that digs up hole. It might be thought bear’s companion by many Japanese.

However, the badger is weasel’s companion. The eurasian badger was short and thick, but there was the part that was common with Japanese marten (Meles meles) when I saw the movement of the eurasian badger well. The basic movement is totally different with a badger and the weasel, but the movement of the waist when a badger runs sometimes thinks that it seems to be a weasel.

It is pleasant that I introduce it to only a minor creature. 🙂
