Why the Monarch Butterfly is the Best for Butterfly Releases.
The Monarch is the perfect butterfly for release for several reasons. The first is simply due to its size. Monarch butterflies are among some of the largest species of butterfly, measuring between 3 ½ to 4 inches in diameter, in conjunction with their bright color, their size makes them very easy to see, even if your event is exceptionally large. This means that even people toward the back of a group will be able to experience the beauty that is a butterfly release. Monarch butterflies also have a much different flight pattern than your typical butterfly. Whereas most species of butterfly flit rapidly and erratically from one place to the next (seemingly without a specific destination in mind), Monarch butterflies fly slower, almost as if they were gliding. With this type of movement, you will be able to follow the serene movements and truly savor every moment of the Monarch’s presence.
**********Along with being rather slow fliers, Monarchs are also exceptionally friendly and sociable butterflies. Where most other species tend to fly off as soon as a human gets near, Monarchs will actually go out of their way to linger after their release, landing on nearby tables and chairs. Some lucky guests may even have butterflies land on their hands, dresses or jackets, which can add a magical moment to the ceremony.********** Not to mention that these moments make for some rather beautiful photographs. When the day starts to draw to a close, then the Monarchs will typically take off in search of food and shelter for the evening. The Monarch butterfly is a truly amazing little creature!
