Even though you know they are gorgeous, and even though you’re already aware of the vast variety of these magical creatures, I bet at least one or two of these butterflies and moths surprise you with a moment of awe–or move you by their cumulative effect. There are many of them because I couldn’t stop myself or choose. Also, I couldn’t resist including a dragonfly and wasp. They seemed to fit right in. Anyway, enjoy.

Ah, Dusky, Such beauteous sights. I have about 30 butterflies hanging above my bed to lift away my cares and woes as I sleep. Thanks, again, lady. Be well.
OMG how can anyone get tired of seeing the vast variety of butterflies! Some of them didn’t even look real. One was so iridescent that I thought it was a delicate hand blown figurine!
Thanks again for sharing, Dusky!
Wow, I wouldn’t know where to begin! They’re all simply amazing.
Thank you for taking the time to prove only God can create such beauty and design!
