They (Butterflies) Discover Nectar

I started this post yesterday but left before I can complete it.
Now, its almost 24 hours later - how time flies!
Continue on from yesterday.....
Two butterflies and two flower pendants.
Perfect match!
Here's some facts about butterflies.
Butterflies only sip liquid food. These can be nectar from flowers, liquid from rotting fruits and.....(not so nice) also rotting animal flesh or animal fluids (yucky!).
Sipping is done using a tube-like proboscis.
This is their 'tongue' and it is long and flexible.
When not in use, this 'tongue' coils up into a spiral ( spiral).
These pendants were shipped out yesterday and I hope the new owner will love them.
