Who knew farming butterflies and observing their cycle intimately in a Butterfly House could be a therapeutic experience? Quite a few of you enjoyed yesterday’s butterfly post. I pulled a few more shots to share. Which one do you prefer the most?

I like picture number four best.

It is literally the size of a human head.

Ebony and Ivory gets the nod from me!

#3 photo = #1 of the butterflies. I read once that the Ancient Greeks observed the cycle of ugly caterpillar, apparently dead chrysalis and then beautiful butterfly. It gave them the idea that we all have a soul which will eventually emerge and then fly off to heaven or wherever.

I love that! It gives me hope, too. 😉

I like the pair at the bottom.
Not the colors I normally see on a butterfly. Thanks, Fraggle.

You are so cruel, Cindy, asking us to pick a favourite from these beauties. 🙂 If I must, I go for Yellow Eyes
March 21, 2017 at 5:32 am
If I have to be cruel, this is how I’d want it to be. Derrick, any ideas why butterflies would have eyes on their wings? You know so much about gardening and animal critters.

Thanks for the confidence, Cindy. I imagine it is to scare off predators.
March 21, 2017 at 6:21 am
That makes sense.
March 21, 2017 at 6:05 am
I’m going with ‘Black Beauty’ this time. I like it when their wings are fully open.
Best wishes, Pete.

A Pair of Beauties.

Thank you, Lloyd.
March 21, 2017 at 1:10 pm
Thank you Cindy, these shots are a little something different.
March 21, 2017 at 1:12 pm
I had too many to include in one post. I’m glad you like them, Lloyd!
March 21, 2017 at 8:33 am
Ahhh … de si beaux papillons!
March 21, 2017 at 4:28 pm
“Ebony and ivory” as well as “2 beauties.” There are my favorites! Thanks for sharing, Cindy.
Maybe you’ll sneak over to see my hot pink flowers with a black and blue butterfly. I went to the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. 🙂 It won’t be till late March or April. Don’t worry, you found your Zen and peace.funny I wrote poetic expression about breathing in and breathing out! Pre-scheduled already before visiting. . . 🙂

The butterflies inspired me, truth be told. I feel like caterpillar and I’m closing the cocoon. Watch out when I emerge!
March 21, 2017 at 8:07 pm
Oh, this is a lovely image of you really being a butterfly “in waiting,” Cindy.
March 21, 2017 at 6:24 pm
I like #3, Ebony and Ivory. It is nice to be well dressed for any formal occasion. 😏
March 21, 2017 at 7:22 pm
The little black dress works there, yes?

Ebony and Ivory is lovely… but really they’re all gorgeous!
