The most lovable sign of spring is seeing butterflies again. They need sunny weather. When the sun shines, they can absorb solar heat with their wings, to warm up and fly.
Butterflies are light and frivolous the way they flutter from flower to flower. It's a joyous sight. They simply enjoy life so it seems. Makes me smile always.
To enter spring I've painted a butterfly for you today. It's one from South-America and usually when they rest they will sit upside down in a high tree. I like their graphic pattern a lot. The male can make a cracking noise, although nobody knows what it's used for. That's how they got their name.
Hope we get to enjoy lots of sun this week,
