Much like the dragonfly, butterflies have become one of the most popular insects in the entire animal kingdom. They show up everywhere — nature photography, paintings, literature, and, of course, as butterfly tattoos. Humans love to prescribe meaning to everything, so the butterfly (and all its various species) has been given some general and specific meanings. Butterflies have come to symbolize our very souls (so fragile, why choose such a fragile creature for our souls?), and in Christianity, butterflies have become synonymous with resurrection. The butterfly transforms from a caterpillar (earthly, we suppose) to its winged final self. Transformation, metamorphosis… got it.
And what do you want to do when you’re drunk? Screw, of course. In the short period of time these guys are alive, the butterflies want to get as much fucking in as possible. And they are full on — the female butterflies and the male butterflies get up in each other’s business just like humans would. And, in true animal kingdom style, the males compete for the female’s attention. So, these drunk party-goes are all fluttering around flirting and fucking.
