Follow the links below for both true and fiction stories about butterflies. The name of the author (if known) is shown. If you would like to contribute your own butterfly story, please email your story to Nancy. (Email address at the left and the bottom of the page.)

Please note: the use of the word cocoon in the most popular butterfly story (author unknown) is not scientifically accurate. The most common version of the story uses the word cocoon to describe one stage of the life of the butterfly. This is the version I have published at Awesome Butterflies. The correct word would be chrysalis.
