Jokes aside. It really is a striking image. I always think of how pretty the butterfly is, a living-breathing piece of artwork. But oddly enough never put much thought into what the butterfly actually does all day (feeding his addictions, I suppose, like everyone else).

Thank you, Phyllis. Had I been a butterfly I am sure I'd be greatly tempted, as well :) Best regards // paul
