o0o they are beautiful creatures but sadly I
am frightened of them, they are probably more
frightened of me ! but its a fear I cannot overcome.
It looks so lovely in black and white, and I know
the colours are eye catching too, as I run away :) oOo

LOL! They are the gentlest creature and have no capability of biting. Butterflies can only stick out their sticky tongues to gather pollen! Hope this gives you more courage!

o0o somehow in black and white .. seems not quite so
difficult for me ~ how strange, when I love colours ...
perhaps its because she has not moved ;-) since I
looked last ;-) oOo
