Writing with fountain pens has been a deeply meaningful part of my life here, offering solace when the situation is awkward or harsh.

Beautiful sentiments and photographs, Tom. Each of your posts enriches us about some aspect of handwriting, fountain pens, nibs, dogs, photography, and simply being a genuine person. Thank you, sir, for all you contribute.

Is that Lantana? And anyone entomologist enough to answer if that’s a variant of the monarch flutterbys migrating in the Western Hemisphere?

Tom--

 

Congratulations on the renewal of your contract. It's a delight to see another photo of Yubi.

Sorry to reopen a sad subject, but now that Yubi is walking outside, what measures are you taking to protect him from Zuji's unfortunate fate?

~ Ghost Plane:

 

It's Danaus genutia on Asclepias curassavica.

Danaus genutia is widespread in India, where it's known as the “Common Tiger” butterfly.

It's in the same family as North America’s Danaus plexippus, the Monarch butterfly.

The flower is Asclepias curassavica, or “Tropical Milkweed”, also called “Bloodflower”. It's an introduced species in Hong Kong.

I apologize for failing to include the identification in the original post.

Tom, congratulations on your contract. That is quite an achievement!

 

Yubi is absolutely lovely! Such a cute little guy!

 

I'm enjoying my latest arrival, a Blue hour with an oblique broad nib

 

fpn_1526282647__img_3503.jpg

 

It was a bit of a surprise to see the OB nib, since I ordered a BB. But, since when I bought it I hesitated between the BB and an OB, all is well!

 

Some more pics (sorry for the bad photos. My abilities are very limited and this is a hard pen to photograph).

Thank you so much!

It was an active flyer, which increased the value of the handheld, manual focus image.

BTW: Today I made an image with you in mind.

When it's posted, you'll know why I selected a certain flower as a backdrop, in order to express my respect for your photography.
