Sweet Flutter Byes

The World is more beautiful because of Butterflies.

It's true.  Can you imagine a world without such an amazing creature?

They fly fast and free.

A group of these creatures is called a Flutter.

That's why I call them Sweet Flutter Byes.
 I  never seem to be able to catch one no matter how hard I try.

They just sweetly flutter bye!

They taste food with their feet!

Flutter Byes weigh less than two rose pedals

and are lighter than a piece of paper

Energy comes from the nectar.

Transformed from a caterpillar in a cocoon for seven whole days,

it magically and mysteriously flutters out after drying off its' new wings, and flies.

Fast and free, dancing in the wind and fluttering bye.

There's no catching these.  That's the Scrappy truth

and it's not for lack of trying.


  1. So beautiful! I can't believe one weighs less than 2 rose petals!

  2. That was beautiful. I love those butterfly's. I just sit and watch them flutter by.

  9. hey Scrappy,

    Beautiful photos! And I love your nick-name of "sweet flutter byes" for these amazing creatures! Very creative and a lovely nick-name! It is sad to see them flutter off. I love when they hang around my home. I had a blue one last year that always stopped by in the afternoon, and we became friends. I miss him. My human tried to get some photos but none turned out as wonderfully as your photos. Great job!

    Best wishes Molly
