The Fairy Princess Who Tames Butterflies

This one speaks for itself. What is it about butterflies that is so magical and beautiful? We thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the butterflies; one actually landed on my arm and I froze until it decided to fly away. All the colors are amazing. There are even butterflies that look luminescent. Sadly, we saw many dead butterflies all over the place, too. I know they don't live long, but I was slightly surprised and sad whenever I glanced one lying on the ground looking either perfectly whole (but dead) or else strangely mangled with a ripped wing, possibly indicating that it had lived a longer albeit more adventerous and/or dangerous life than it's comrades. We even got a picture of all of us on the big plastic caterpiller on the way out b/c a kind older gentleman offered to take it.
