In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site www.corneliaweber-photography.com
Wonderful captures of these nicely colored butterflies. Good to have such butterfly houses that give us the chance to discover these tropical creatures. I once visited such house in the Netherlands.
Have a nice week,
Thank you Rudi, it makes me happy that you enjoyed them. Now I’m trying to raise butterflies at my little place, because I’m just so mesmerized by them. Have a great week.
here an excerpt from my “Lexikon der Symbole” keyword ‘Schmetterling’:
“Novalis: ‘Wer Schmetterlinge lachen hört, der weiß wie Wolken riechen.’
Bisweilen tritt der Schmetterling als Todessymbol auf, da die Raupe sterben muss, um ihn entstehen zu lassen.
In der Antike wurde der Schmetterling, der aus einer Puppe hervorgeht, weithin als Symbol für die unsterbliche Seele, die den sterblichen Körper zurücklässt, angesehen. Auch Hypnos, der Gott des Schlafes wurde mit Schmetterlingsflügeln am Kopf abgebildet, weil der Schlaf der kleine Bruder des Todes ist.”
Great pictures. Thanks for sharing

Dear Klausbernhard, danke dir fuer diese wundervollen Zitate, ja natuerlich Novalis. I have read that too, of course that butterflies can be a symbol of death, as it is demonstrated in so many old paintings and still lives. Indeed there is much spirituality symbolized in butterflies. Danke dir vielmals fuer deine wunderbare Antwort und Kommentar. Many greetings from the other side of the globe.
What a wonderful idea to have a butterfly house! Your photos bring joy to my heart. I believe that the message of love and happiness is present every time we marvel at the beauty of a butterfly.
Peter, I am happy that it brings joy to your heart, so did it for me. Thank you for enjoying it. Have a great week.
Wow such excellent pictures so well taken, Cornelia and wonderful butterflies all full of wisdom and love. Great post.
Thank you Kamal, it has been truly a magical experience.
You are always welcome dear Cornelia ♥️🌷😊❤️
Magnificent photos and what a wonderful experience, Cornelia. They are such delicate, stunning creatures. They know wisdom when they see it. 🙂
Thank you Jane, it truly was a magnificent experience. I’m trying to get some caterpillars from a friend and attract them to my plants.
Wise women welcome butterflies into their lives! I remember visiting a butterfly house in Newport Beach years ago with my mother. They loved her white hair and landed all over her head. Now that I’m grey-haired, I wonder if they’ll find me as attractive. I’ll have to go see!!! I put large Monarch caterpillars and milkweed in an airy box and watch them form their chrysalises. So far this year, I’ve hatched 3 beautiful adults. When my dad was still alive, we hatched dozens every month. It’s like watching magic before your very eyes…complete metamorphosis is astoundingly beautiful. You can’t beat Nature’s way !!!!
Linda that’s so wonderful what you share with me, thank you. They all landed on me, because I was wearing a hat and they seemed to be attracted by that. I am going to get some caterpillars from Esty , also bought some nice plants for them to hatch. It’s truly a miracle to watch them. Hope to see you on the 21rst at Helga’s.
A Butterfly House. The very name conjures up fairy tale fantasy images. As if the most beautiful of flowers have shaken the earth from there feet and taken wing. How can butterflies be anything but magic. We have turned half our vegetable garden into a butterfly-bee garden Cornelia.. When a Monarch butterfly visited the garden I was thrilled beyond belief.

How wonderful that we share our admiration of butterflies, Virginia. Loving your beautiful poetic comment, thank you for enjoying. I’m trying to raise butterflies in my little flowerbed. Have a wonderful week.
Lovely captures ❤
Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying
Beautiful captures, as always. The butterflies in my city are not as colorful so this is a treat for the eyes.
Hi Arv, I am glad that this was a treat for your eyes. Thank you for your kind comment. Have a great weekend.
You are welcome, Cornelia. 🙂
Looks like a wonderful place to visit. So much beauty and “tender vibes from butterflies. xo, Darlene
Oh, Darlene it’s just magical to be in this butterfly house. Thank you for enjoying the images.
When my son was in preschool , I used to take him at Moody Gardens in Galveston. They have this butterfly garden and we would watch them feed on the fruits. Thank you for this wonderful post, not only are the pictures beautiful but it brought beautiful memories. Take care.
It’s indeed a wonderful experience to watch butterflies. By now I am raising them on my little front porch, its pretty exciting.
