The thyroid gland is butterfly shaped. Sitting at the front of the neck, this little gland is responsible for a lot of functions to happen properly and when it underperforms, this causes hypothyroidism, a condition with many symptoms. These symptoms can include, fatigue, muscle pain and weakness, sleep disturbances, weight gain, hormonal issues, acid reflux, hair loss and a low sex drive, to name just a few.

With the thyroid gland being butterfly shaped, I thought I would share some of the photos I took at a butterfly farm last month.
