Dance Of The Butterflies
I do not know why but in the course of my life I have managed to tame some butterflies into landing on my body parts, and usually when I visited butterfly farms I have even managed to coax them into landing on my fingers. The reason for this is simple, the butterflies are usually already tame and I usually have a dirty trick up my sleeves, whereby I will dip my fingers into the nectar that the farm usually lay out to feed the butterflies. So naturally some will flock to my fingers right. occasion to see butterflies dancing in midair and rarer still to capture it with your camera. Though I have seen such a butterfly dance twice before, I was happy enough to be able to film this two butterfly dancing merrily in my porch yesterday. Nothing distracted them from their dance, even when my wife held out a flower between them. However after observing the clip more closely, I have come to the conclusion that this is not really a mid-air ballet between a loving butterfly couple, but more of a dogfight between two male butterflies. Have a look and make your own conclusions.
