Butterflies captured in a butterfly house, Palos Verdes, California

A butterfly is a symbol of happiness and good luck to follow you in the future


I recently went to the Butterfly House in Palos Verdes , California

This is the chrysalis , before it hatches to a butterfly
The food station of grapefruits

The blue morphus before opening it’s wings
Here it is in all its beauty unfolded. They are really hard to captured since they move so quickly

The most common is the Monarch butterfly

Butterflies also symbolize spiritual growth and wisdom .
They landed on my hat, arms and even on my camera, so I guess I got lots of wisdom from this mesmerizing visit. Enjoy what you see

    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,

    Dear Cornelia,
    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.

    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.

  11. 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.
