I remember when I was so young I used to watch caterpillars crawl around in the backyard. I would watch for as long as I could until it was time to go inside the home. I remember one particular time when I was laying down on the grass of the yard and then there was this cute caterpillar in the grass, and I wanted to keep it. My mother told me at the time that it was not going to be a good idea if I did that because that would go against what the caterpillar needed to do. I was confused, as I had no idea what that meant.

She told me then the caterpillar had to go away because they were meant to turn into a beautiful butterfly. I was interested in knowing more so my mother explained the change that the caterpillar makes as it goes into a cacoon and then it sheds itself to become a butterfly so it can spread its wings. I did not understand that but after learning about more how it works, it was gross but at the same time fascinating. How could a cute caterpillar turn into an amazing butterfly? Nature is so cool isn’t that right? I think so. I learned more about it too when I went to the museum of butterflies. However, the caterpillars that turn into moths are not so cute even though you don’t know the difference. Moths are far from cute, that is for sure.

Anyway, why are we talking about caterpillars, butterflies, and moths? I don’t know. Maybe it is time for me to share 50 butterfly puns that are so colorful? How does that sound to you? Alright, let’s give it a go.
