Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

Mating Harmonia Tigers

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

When butterflies mate they create a beautiful symmetry, a reflection of each other. I thought I’d share the love with you all for Valentines Day! In many cultures throughout the world butterflies symbolise the soul. Perhaps together they are truly soulmates. In Chinese culture and mythology, two butterflies flying together symbolise love. A male butterfly flutters in the air behind a potential mate, wafting his pheromones over her. She can tell whether he is her soulmate (perfect genetic match) from the scent and taste of these pheromones.

Happy Valentines Day to you all!

  1. Excellent potos, we especially love the first one, how on earth did do manage this! πŸ™‚
    Happy Valentine,

    • Thank you all πŸ™‚ I was lucky that they’d settled on a low enough leaf that I was able to stretch out and get the camera right above them! It wasn’t easy to get it level though I have to admit. Hope you’ve had a lovely day πŸ™‚
