I have always loved the way butterflies flutter around... sometimes soaring, sometimes fluttering from flower to flower, and sometimes sitting still with its wings wide open absorbing the sun.
When I was about 13 or so I began collecting some butterflies for my very own collection. The funny thing is that in reality I have not caught many of the butterflies! Most of them have been given to me. My siblings have caught butterflies for me, my Dad has brought some home from work, and friends and neighbors have given me butterflies. I even have a couple butterflies from Africa from a missionary family!
