as robert louis stevenson put it,

It's been about 20 years since I was in a butterfly pavilion, back in Colorado. It's good they're keeping things alive with breeding programs, I just wonder what it is like for a wild thing that migrates and roams to be confined, what happens to the migratory restlessness that is the zugunruhe?
