A Swarm of Valentines

Pinky delivered all 20 of her butterfly Valentine's Day cards to her classmates today. When she saw this picture on Skip to my Lou, she KNEW she wanted to make them. Even standing in an aisle full of character-laden boxed cards couldn't sway her. Sigh - she's my girl after all. I've never been so proud!

She picked out the stickers and the paper we used. I cut them; she decorated and signed her name to the back. We worked together to add the Tootsie Pops. It was a lot of fun working on these together. And she couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

But this has led me to an important question - what do you call a group of butterflies? I searched the internet and found all sorts of answers - a swarm, a rabble, a flutter, even a rainbow. Is there one official, scientific name for this group (other than cute and delicious)?

I'm a fan of "flutter." I'm sure Pinky would vote for calling them a "rainbow of butterflies."
