Butterfly commercial

There is communication, and there is communion. Communion not as a state of non-conflict, but as a state of recognition of each other as legitimate persons.

So when a butterfly draws nectar from a flower and carries pollen to another, it might be simply a commercial transaction. It might also be loving. But how are we, another species, to know? When a bird chases another bird, is it play, is it threat, is it conversation? How are we to know? When traffic clogs and clears, is it knowing another, or simply traffic clogging and clearing? How are we to know? The task might be to ask the question.
