Short but sweat
I got back a short while ago from a late morning walk on the Hsint'ien 新田 trails in T'antzu (Tanshi/Thamchu) 潭子. The humidity level was high, but the walk was relatively uneventful, except for the many caterpillars ケムシ out and about. The future butterflies and moths were everywhere on the trails, crawling on leaves and wooden posts, hanging by threads from tree branches and ending up on my clothing. I was also kept company by a trio of geckos ヤモリ on the ceiling of a pavilion where I stopped for a Pocari Sweat ポカリスエット break. On the way home, the rice fields were full of egrets 白鷺 looking for insects and small frogs.
