attracted not just birds but...

Abhorrent as a
caterpillar but became
one so beautiful

Both are colorful
But why it was a put off
but later transformed?

A butterfly flies
inviting for grabs as it
flutters leisurely

Beautiful colors
attracted not just birds but 
avid collectors

Note: Following Basho, Hank's attempts 
at creating paradoxes not knowing it works
or not

For Chev's CARPE DIEM #727  -  a butterfly flies

  6. Why would anyone want to pin butterflies on boards? At least the caterpillar is safe from that.
