Have you noticed how they dip their wings to tantalize and tease and brush their soft velvety skin against yours…. adoringly they admire your uniqueness, your delicate shape, your scent and intoxicating colors. 

They dart this way and that, blinding you as they flutter their colorful wings against the sun.
At last, you relent and share your sweet and precious nectar……
and then….while still languishing in the attention and affection, they instantly withdraw and disappear!
No, they have not left….in awe, you watch them perform a similar ritualistic dance with the flower beside you….
This is natures way with butterflies and the flowers that attract them…..
