The beauty of symmetry pervades all around us. From snowflakes to galaxies, spider webs to seashells, sunflowers to honeycombs; symmetry is ubiquitous in Nature. The study of symmetry excites Mathematicians, Botanists, Zoologists, Chemists, Physicists and many more Scientists alike. An understanding of symmetry unlocks the mysteries of Nature in more ways than one.
In our September calendar, we explore this magical concept with a visual representation of different species of butterflies. One of the most common and mesmerising organisms to exhibit symmetry, butterflies are a visual treat to a common observer as well as an industrious lepidopterist. There are more than 15,000 species of butterflies; ranging from the commonly found monarch butterfly to the more exotic glass wing butterfly. Butterflies thrive in tropical climates and are found in almost every continent. Peru holds the distinction of housing the largest number of butterfly species – around 37,000 of them.
Whatever the species and wherever they live, butterflies surely hold a fascination to people all over the world. Join Kudums in watching and exploring different species of butterflies from around the globe.
