Warming Up

The Citrus Swallowtail Butterfly is warming up and getting ready to conquer the garden.

There are numerous meanings of phrasal verb ‘to warm up’, but in this case or photo, it means to prepare for something such as an activity, game, or race using gentle exercises or just before it starts. (MacMillan Dictionary)

Here’s couple of idioms about ‘butterfly’.

‘butterflies in stomach’ ~ this means someone is feeling nervous (or excited) about something that you have to do especially if it is important

For example;

Mary had butterflies in stomach prior the start of her business presentation.

‘gaudy as a butterfly’ ~ this means something is fancy or colorful

For example;

Usra’s gown is gaudy as butterfly. Many designers are inspired by her outfit.

Thank you for viewing and learning English with me! To know more about how I raised this butterfly, you may check out my latest blog. I included the link below. :)
