Yellow Butterfly Season

I’ve been lucky enough to visit Bir several times in recent years and often during the autumn. So I wasn’t surprized as I walked into town yesterday, to see a cloud of hundreds of yellow butterflies rising up from the small field that separates the Labrang from Chokling Monastery. However many times I’ve seen witnessed the beginning of what I call ‘yellow butterfly season’ it never fails to take my breath away.

Today Pawo (Adarsha Photography, the new addition to my ‘Blogroll’) very generously gave me some of his wonderful drupchen photos and without hesitation agreed when I asked him if I could post some. So for those of you who suspect I exaggerate, here’s a photo of one of the apple-rich tsoks from the drupchen, and an action shot of the rice war.
