Slumbering Lepidoptera

Did you ever wonder where butterflies go to sleep at night?


Well it's my theory that they sleep inside used egg shells.  Just like we imagine (and some of us can even claim to know) that fairies sleep beneath the furry toadstools (Amanita muscaria) that we prefer to call mushrooms, I like to imagine that butterflies stay safe inside shells that are no longer required by their original incumbents.


I had so much fun cutting open these eggs using a pair of craft scissors called Rockies, so called I suppose for their varying zig-zag heights.




Do you have any creative fairy theories that you would like to share?
