Nature enthusiasts, bug-lovers, and lovers of light and color all adore the myriad forms of the butterfly. Often seen alighting on flowers and grasses, the butterfly and its image have come to mean many different things to many different people.
In some cultures, the butterfly is celebrated as a symbol of transformation, patience, and love. In American culture, the butterfly is often depicted as an image of the coming spring, representing new life and change.
Butterflies come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: each beautiful, winged butterfly begins life as a lowly caterpillar. From the beautiful, polka-dotted Red Pierrot to the iridescent, bold Blue Morpho, these magnificent creatures are proof of transformative miracles and the incredible, complex beauty of nature.

Though farming, forest clearing, and other industrial development has chased Giant Panda populations deeper and deeper into the mountains, these large, gentle bears still graze in mountainous regions of central China.
The giant panda is about the same size as the average American Black Bear. They dine almost exclusively on bamboo, which means hours and hours of chewing the reedy stalks in order to get enough nutrition to survive. Pandas also get a majority of the water in their diet from the broken-down bamboo stalks, which contain large amounts of water.
Typically solitary creatures, the Giant Panda lives and cares for offspring for up to three years in the wild.
