Butterflies are quite fascinating, although they have a very short lifespan.
A quick search on the Internet will show you that they only live for an average of a month.
What makes them fascinating is their beauty and symbolism.
In Chinese culture, a butterfly is believed to symbolize happiness and prosperity. It may also mean good luck or a life full of love.
Other cultures say that a butterfly symbolizes rebirth and transformation. This is perhaps because of its metamorphosis.
