Butterfly Animal Symbolism – Butterfly MeaningFar from being a flighty, fluffy symbol – the animal symbolism of the butterfly is about profound changes of the soul and knowing the spirit!!

Swaying in the love of nature
The butterfly can’t resist.
Fluttering around like a little
angel of bliss
The cactus so willing to let
them sit on it, while they
recover from their
journey in the mist of the
morning fair
whoops all of a sudden
up they go to never return

Where did the butterfly get its name?
Undramatically, a yellow fly that looks like butter
The butterfly is so called because a common English butterfly was yellow, looking like butter. Other suggestions, such as the beautiful “flutterby” don’t hold water, alas



butterflies, symbol, spirit, change

Art is my love, heart and soul. I could paint digitally or traditional nite and day..
