A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect of the order Lepidoptera, which includes the butterflies and moths. Like other holometabolous insects, the butterfly's life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Most species are diurnal. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Butterflies comprise the true butterflies (superfamily Papilionoidea), the skippers (superfamily Hesperioidea) and the moth-butterflies (superfamily Hedyloidea). All the many other families within the Lepidoptera are referred to as moths. The earliest known butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, between 40–50 million years ago.

Not sure if this is the right place for this so please move if requried.
This is something that happened yesterday at my home and I was wondering if anyone could help determine the meaning if any. Please note that this was not a dream as my wife, my 2 boys and myself all saw this.
My wife and i were sitting on our porch and my son(5) was next to us talking when this "charkal gray butterfly landed on his chest, we though..Ahhhhh!! Cute but then the butterfly started to "play with him" like flying circles around him and landed all over him an tickleing his neck and all. When my other son (6) heard us laugh an discuss it, him loving bugs, he came over running to see what was up. As he arrived, a second butterfly (same color) showed up and did the same thing with him. It lasted easily 10-15 minutes. We were in AWE!!!
I was told by a friend that seing butterflies could indicate a change coming... I don't know about that but who knows maybe he was right.
I just had to share this story as this was something that I never seen before in my life!! If someone would happen to know what this could symbolize or even share your own similar stories, It would be greatly appreciated.

The word ‘butterfly’ signifies a type of insect.
The butterfly itself doesn't signify a damn thing.
It signifies energy flowing in a certain way.
