Part 2 of the "Insect Kingdom Suite," The Butterfly Princess is also programmatic, but has an unusual sound; I used the Chinese modal pentatonic system to write this piece to convey a distinctly "Asian" flavor.  You can hear a single butterfly in the beginning of the piece, but it eventually flies into a field of flowers and is joined by clouds of butterflies.  The butterfly flies off on its own again and finally settles down on a flower.
