The Courtship Dance Of The Crescent Butterflies

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Tag Along 52620” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The cool scent of water mint rises from the creek while I ease my way closer to butterflies. Their tiny little wings flex in unison as they pump the warmth of the sun throughout their bodies. They take short hops from leaf to leaf in perfect synchronicity as if they were physically connected. I have often compared a butterfly’s flight to a dance joy or raw wild freedom but today they dance to a different tune. Today, it’s a slow dance. The song is one that plays in their hearts as they lift off together. They turn in a slow arch and dip. Once more they land in perfect alignment and pause only long enough for three slow wingbeats. They rise once again and this time the dance takes the form of a figure 8 before returning to the same spot. The male has not wavered in his devotion. He’s matched her lead in every choreographed maneuver through the air. They continue to pump their wings in perfect synchronicity and then they lift off together. This time though the dance has ended and the lovers make their exit to enjoy each other’s company in private.
