Butterflies, with their whimsical flight and flashy wings, inspire us to thoughts of hope and spring, They even find their way into our home decorations. Did you know that there are 17,500 species of butterflies of which 750 are in the United States? Their wings are actually translucent, but tiny scales overlay and reflect beautiful patterns and color that make the butterly the most renowned and perhaps loved of insects among humans. They, like most of nature when studied in detail, are a testiment to our creator.
