1977 Japan
Nature Conservation Series: Euterpnosia chibensis, Boninthemis insularis, Graphium doson albidum & Luciola cruiata

All those insects have association to specific season strongly.  A week ago in Japan, I heard a lot of sound of Cicada, sound like strong squall, even in a small park in town.  Today I realised that no sound of cicada, and Red Dragonfly, a sympol of autumn, was elegantly flew in front of me.

ヒメハルゼミ、シマアカネ、ミカドアゲハ、ゲンジボタル。せみ時雨はわたしにとって、なつかしい夏の風物として「楽しむ」音です。一週間前は夏の終わりを感じつつもまだ公園などでセミの声を楽しんだ。台風が通り過ぎた今朝、セミの音はもうなくなり、目の前を赤とんぼが横切った。秋ですね。

追記:その赤トンボ、シマアカネが環境省の昆虫類レッドリストに入っていました。
