Early last week the sun was shining and the air was warm. Walking down the hill from work on my way to the subway train I rescued a pretty little butterfly from the road.
"Spring!" I thought. It was an odd little butterfly. I noticed it had a good grip on my finger. Then I noticed it was gripping with only four legs. I looked and sure enough that was all it had. Not even stubs or scars where the other two legs should have been. Odd. A mutant butterfly.
I walked a ways down with it clinging to my finger then put it into a small patch of plants off the road.

This is my example for Halloween treat bags that I will make with my first grade class. I figured since we will make pumpkin lanterns later it would be good to have them decorate their bags with something else, like a cute ghost. :)
It's very simple: a paper lunch bag, white and black construction paper, crayons, and glue.
I got the idea for the face from a craft I did with kindergarten students a couple of years ago.
The site that I originally got that craft from, I cannot find. I did find the same one here.

After work today I went with a friend to Cafe Bene near Sungshin University subway station to chat while she killed time before making an appointment.

Tiny salamander. There isn't much info out there in English on the kinds of salamanders in Korea. A site I found said that Korean salamanders take up to one or two years to mature to the point that they lose their external gills and leave the water. Ones in the exotic pet shops here that I have seen are much bigger and still have their feathery gills. This one has already lost them and has sort of molted a layer. Interesting. It now looks a bit different in both color and shape- it is darker and the head seems much more angular than before.
