Learn about Butterflies Day takes place on March 14, 2017. OK, let's start and learn something about butterflies: A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect which includes the butterflies and moths. The butterfly's life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.
Butterflies feed primarily on nectar from flowers. Some also derive nourishment from pollen, tree sap, rotting fruit, dung, decaying flesh, and dissolved minerals in wet sand or dirt. Butterflies are important as pollinators for some species of plants although in general they do not carry as much pollen load as bees. (With material from: Wikipedia)
