Could you "Hitch a ride on the back of a butterfly"?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (34067 points ) July 12th, 2012

I love the image that that lyric brings to my mind. Could you imagine yourself doing that? How would it make you feel? Just some lighthearted musings on a nice afternoon.

You moth be kidding ;¬}
If you look at the way your average flutterby flies, it’s like they can’t believe they’re actually flying.
“Whoo-hoo, look at me…this is fantastic!”

I could and would if I could! And I would shout, “Whoo-hoo, look at me…this is fantastic!”

I’d hitch a ride on a butterfly
Whishing and whooping along
I“ll flick the tail on a dragonfly
As a hummingbird buzzes a song

Come swing with me on my butterfly
Along swaying rainbow fields of nectar
We howl and yodel, not a single sigh
With wasps and bees we flutter afar-!

After watching Dr. Dolittle back in the 60’s, the thought of flying on the back of a Luna Moth fascinated me. After seeing a live one, it burst that bubble, unless I was able to find one large enough or able to find the “Drink Me” liquid from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

(@ucme, Oddly David’s brother Richard was in that movie.)

I think it would be very relaxing. Not only would you be hitching a ride on a tremendously beautiful and fragile creature, you’d get a a nice view of the wonderful environment that it lives in. And when it was all over, you’d know that for just a small space in time in which you had that experience, you’d be the better for it because it was such a unique and unforgettable event.

I would, but I hear butterflies are very hard to train. You’d get on and you’d never know where you were being taken. You could land 50 miles away, be tossed off, and be stranded with no way back. And it’s nearly 5 and you haven’t even started dinner and your husband’s boss and his wife are coming . . . I think I’ll pass

I like butterflies, they look cool and pretty. I especially love nocturnal ones.

I’d definitely ride Mothra to work. The hell with rush hour!
