Once the butterfly has drawn you in with its visual charms, and you have become a captive audience, more wonders of their world will begin to be revealed, forever rendering you a willing student.

The butterflies domain is one of mystery and grace, where the miracle of metamorphosis rules. The tiniest egg becomes a colorful caterpillar. That caterpillar then changes into a curious chrysalis, from which then emerges a butterfly~

Nevermore will a flying flower drift by you unnoticed – K. D’Angelo

Your enamored eyes will seek out and follow a fleeting butterfly as if it were a tiny flying miracle harboring the secrets of life within its wings. Greeks used the word “Psyche” in their language to describe both a butterfly and a soul. It seems that they too found themselves infatuated and inspired by these lovely creatures and their miraculous journeys.
