These guys are across from the art museum behind Deoksugung, a palace across from Seoul's City Hall.  They amuse me.
An interesting illusion.
This plaque sits next to them, telling about the little vertically challenged family.

Four Legs

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.  
Maybe it's from all of the acid snow and pollution? It didn't form properly in its cocoon over the winter.
I walked a ways down with it clinging to my finger then put it into a small patch of plants off the road.
