Butterfly Attraction

<span class=<span class=<span class=

There are several stories about butterflies in mythology from all over the world, many of which, in particular Greek mythology, link butterflies to the human soul. The Ancient Greeks also considered butterflies as the souls of those who had passed away.

Butterflies are generally symbols of transformation because they go through a metamorphosis. They are beautiful, evasive, and, at times, inspiring.

Always captivating they bring a smile to my face every time I see one!

If you are walking by and you happen to see a butterfly, do you notice it? and if you do, do they entice any particular feeling?

hmmm i don't remember seeming too many recently...i wonder if its because there just arent that many around me or I'm just too busy to notice them (sad)! When I was little, I used to find a lot of them in my grandfather's backyard and I would love identifying and learning about all the different types of was so fascinating to me!

P.S. Those images are beautiful! :-)
