Butterflies Of The World

Artist Comments: This insect order ( Lepidoptera ) is one of the largest on earth and their geographical distribution is worldwide. Some species do not move more than 2,000 feet during their entire lifespans while others like the Monarch migrates more than 2,000 miles! They are masters of camouflage and some have bright eyespot markings that confuse and intimidate predators. Their diversity and brilliant colors make them one of the wondrous creatures of the world and for many cultures the Butterfly is a symbol of self transformation. Color, beauty and self transformation.....values of an artist!
