Thursday's Gift

There is an average life span of a butterfly - it is usually about one month. Thursday after work I came home to this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. BEAUTIFUL! A wonderful gift of beauty...for me to see! Thank you God, thank you. In that moment...I forgot all about my work day and how tired I felt.

Did you know? Butterflies can see red, green and yellow.

    The top butterfly flight speed is 12 mph.

      Butterflies cannot fly if their body temperature is less than 86*

        Many butterflies can taste with their feet.

          There are estimated to be 24,000 species of butterflies.
