Butterflies don’t have to make any noise to attract our attention.

Silent, etherial and delicate, butterflies are the stars of the summer stage, able to captivate us without saying a word, and hold our attention for as long as they are in our midst. Many an actor wishes they had the ability to conjure up the same magic. Of course we too are sometimes like them, as Carl Sagan reminded us, “We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.”

These self-propelled flowers only live a mere week or two, and as George Carlin famously said, “The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.”

They are also the inspiration for artists, many of whom have contributed their works to this summer long show at the Berkshire Museum.
