That's what they say about all four of the delicate winged creatures in Daniel's Bugs & Butterflies Collection. But which one would you prefer to land bringing luck to your home?
Ladybirds are perhaps the most famously lucky. If one lands on your hand, some say you can make a wish. Other recommend waiting to see where it flies away to, as that is where your luck will come from.
Bees are more specific - they bring wealth! It must all those hard worker bees busily making honey the colour of gold (and protecting it fiercely) that has cemented their link with golden riches. So if you can hold your nerve and stay still with one on your hand or allow one which has flown into your home to leave in its own time, prosperity will follow.
It is not our pink-hued Butterfly which is lucky*, but their white cousins. This is the perfect time of your to keep your eye out, as if a white butterfly is the first you see in the early spring, you will have good luck all year.
*Though do pink butterflies actually exist?!
The Dragonfly is a bit more of a mixed omen. Although it is not lucky for much of modern Europe, in ancient times it was linked to the auspicious Freya, the pagan goddess of love. Further East, the dragonfly is a famous symbol of luck and prosperity in China and strength and victory for Japanese Samurai.
Whichever of the four you prefer, it's bound to bring some good fortune your way. Try your luck and enter our Good Luck Giveaway - closes 28 February 2017.
