GPS Guide: Mesmerizing Butterfly Wings


The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

There are about 17,500 species of butterflies spread throughout the globe. Butterflies are usually associated with grace -- they roam the skies with an admirable air of freedom. The beauty of each butterfly is in it's wing pattern -- a delicate pattern crafted by nature's paintbrush. Check out the series of butterflies below, and let us know in the comments which species you find most gorgeous.
