Description
Sometimes, butterflies are regarded as mystical insects in some cultures. They embody souls of the dead or symbolize immortality — The ancient Greeks believed that a butterfly was a human soul, loosed from a deceased body. In Asia, a butterfly can mean both immortality and marriage. For some Christians and Native Americans, a butterfly is a symbol of rebirth. When I saw a beautiful male monarch butterfly landing on the corpse of a rodent, I couldn't help wondering: Is it reincarnation? Or, just the living feeds on the dead to carry on transitions in life?
