The colourful flitting beauties have always attracted attention not only of children but of everyone irrespective of age and profession. The interest in learning about butterflies and studying them has been on the rise since the past few years. The concept of butterfly gardens has also gained popularity during these years. Spending time in a butterfly garden can be pleasing, knowledgeable and soothing all at once.
