Why has the common image of a fairy consolidated around the image of the butterfly wings?Butterflies, like
fairies, are creatures of magical transformation. In its caterpillar skin, the creature grovels on the earth, like us mortals; then, after a time of death-like cocoon, she emerges into her full beauty, fee to fly to a higher element. The fitting, darting, light-reflecting dragonfly too. is transformed from a base watery element to the higher realm of air, so it is not surprising that dragonfly wings are also pictured adoring fairy's forms too.
