Free the Butterflies!

We have a complementary health fair in Heerenveen next Sunday, I am helping organize it. I am packing sixty butterflies in plastic for the participants tagged with a little “Thank You” note. I thought it was best to pack them in plastic, but with each butterfly I think now how sad it is for the butterfly to be stuck in its plastic cage. When I gave the butterfly more room by packing it differently, it became only uglier and more sad because you saw only wrinkeled plastic and deep down a hint of a butterfly. Nothing helped really. So today I made a picture of a few and sent it to the other organizers with the question if they did not find it ugly… and sad.... for the butterflies. They did not.
