“Butterflies are self propelled flowers.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
A butterfly is nature’s coloring book, don’t you think? Look at the wonderful color combinations, for earthy or vibrant, loud to somewhat dull, you find them flying in all the possible colors the human mind can imagine! Like the quote mentioned above, these flying marvels are often compared with flowers, perhaps due to the fact that they are as beautiful, delicate, and equally colorful; however, we beg to differ. We think that a butterfly earns more brownie points than a flower in terms of beauty and color, because a flower mostly has only one color, but when it comes to butterflies, varied colors can come together to form a beautiful pattern in a single butterfly.
