Late summer is the perfect time to catch a glimpse of monarch butterflies before they migrate south for the winter. They are beautiful to watch tho! Funny fact is that in Japanese cho is butterflies, it was one of the first words that the school kids taught me when I taught at Konan-chu in Matsue; in Spanish it's mariposa & I lived near a town in the Yosemite area of California that was named Mariposa where I lived in a tent cabin in the woods for nine months. Also, butterflies are the symbol for change when they come into your dreams. From a cultural perspective butterflies are the symbol for resurrection, transition, celebration, lightness, time & soul. Butterflies are very graceful & eloquence to their beauty.
