The butterfly that goes from Canada to Mexico and partway back lives six to nine months, but when it mates and lays eggs, it may have gotten only as far as Texas, and breeding butterflies live only about six weeks. So a daughter born on a Texas prairie goes on to lay an egg on a South Dakota highway divider that becomes a granddaughter. That leads to a great-granddaughter born in a Winnipeg backyard. Come autumn, how does she find her way back to the same grove in Mexico that sheltered her great-grandmother?

I just love reading about these ones... donno why...

May be the fact that such tiny creatures can achieve so much might be fascinating me....


May be the validation of "mayi sarvamidam protam......" (gita 7.7) might be the key .....

May be its just their beauty.... for once, can't I not worry about the reason ?! and enjoy ...
