In everyday life, we all encounter pests now and then but how many of these pests are actually part of the natural wonder? Take the butterfly, for example, it is regarded by many as a pest because they may eat their crops or leaves in the caterpillar stage. This pictured one is amazing in that the stones/decorative rock are only a half inch or so in diameter. It’s truly a small beautiful wonder among us regularly.
Everyone knows the metamorphosis story how the caterpillar turns into a cocoon and emerges as a beautiful butterfly. A really beautiful story. The real question is why do so many people view the butterfly and virtually all the creatures and natural environment as so pleasing to the eyes?
Science can’t answer that question because it goes beyond the reaches of science. Man can’t answer it, in fact, mankind has done so many awful things to destroy the wonders of nature. The progress of mankind comes at the expense of nature. Strip mining for example and other mining have taken their toll and of course Wars on the planet.
The answer to why we find nature so beautiful lies deep in your heart, mind, and soul. Look there and you’ll find the answer. The great Louis Armstong said it best in the song “What a wonderful world”.
