Why I Love Butterflies
As I kid, I was amazed that some butterflies travel across the country to lay their eggs in Mexico. That’s a long distance to travel — particularly when you’re so small! I also thought their wings were extremely beautiful. What other insect is as pretty to look at with so many different colors?
As an adult, I am fascinated by the transformation that all butterflies go through. They start from tiny eggs, grow into caterpillars and then a butterfly. Every time I’ve had a big transition in my life (such as leaving home for the first time, graduating from school or starting my first job), I’ve had to change and grow. I always think “if the butterflies can do it, so can I.”– Steve
