  • History:

    Often seen floating between flowers, butterflies are brightly colored insects that live off of the nectar in plants. Because butterflies emerge from their chrysalises (similar to a cocoon) during the warmer months, they’re often seen and represented as the heralds of spring and summer. Did you know that most butterflies use their vibrant colorations as defense? While you might think they attract attention, they actually scare predators off or help the butterflies blend into the flowers and fauna where they feed.
