In Focus: Simple nature

As a child, I patiently waited alongside my second-grade peers for monarch cocoons to give way to our much anticipated butterflies. That same wonder and awe returned as I entered the Geneva Park District’s Peck Farm Butterfly House. 

With the sun shining, the house’s butterflies fluttered about, frequently landing to sun their wings on the colorful array of flowers. The transitions that butterflies go through are continuous throughout their lives – they never stop changing, and we as humans never stop marveling at the creatures. 

Children were standing silent, patiently waiting for the touch of the butterfly as their parents pointed and snapped photos of the winged insects. Within the Butterfly House, all ages were united in the experience of taking in the simple nature of the butterfly.
