The golden glow of early morning sunshine gradually spread through the glass house where hundreds of the most beautiful butterflies were displayed in glass cases in the butterfly museum. The warming light of the sun soon infused the space and created a welcoming atmosphere for the start of a new day. When the glass doors opened an influx of excited visitors quickly filled the room. The collection of rare and beautiful creatures is renowned and attracts people from all over. They have one thing in common, to imagine the butterflies in their natural setting; mile upon mile of green pastures blanketed by spring wild flowers that attract the rarest of species, dancing and weaving from one flower to the next. They imagine how wonderful it would be to experience this phenomenon. Each butterfly species with its own exquisite and unique patterns with brilliant colors fluttering in an impressionistic concert through the fields of wild flowers in bloom.
As the sun sets on the horizon the doors close after the last group of visitors. The click of the lock and the sound of footsteps fading away brings silence at the end of the day as moonlight begins to flood the glass house. The butterflies quietly come back to life. Soon they are flying in every direction; darting, dancing, prancing, twirling, weaving in and out in circles, coiling in pairs, kissing the flowers as they pass and fluttering their wings to the rhythm of the twinkling of the stars and in harmony with the whisper of the moonlight. Hundreds of beautifully colored butterflies are dancing like ballerinas in the moon-shadows and frolicking like petals in the wind; a touch of beauty given to this earth during their short lifetime.
Before the sun rises in the dawn of a new day the butterflies go back in their display cases, seemingly lifeless. The lock is unlatched once again and a mass of visitors soon fills the museum. They have come to admire the beauty that nature created. Each and every one different from the others, a master piece of art on a tiny canvas choreographed by nature into amazing and beautiful performing art.
