You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
While working on my computer today a butterfly flew into my room and landed on top of my computer. My curiosity must have scared the insect and with regular intervals it desperately attempted to find the way out again, flying back and forward against the window and the curtain. After a short while it stopped and I carefully caught the butterfly and gave it back it’s freedom.
An Indian Butterfly Legend;
If anyone desires a wish to come true they must capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it. Since they make no sound, they can’t tell the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit. So by making the wish and releasing the butterfly it will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
