Butterflies

Butterflies are more than just beautiful insects. They are an important part of our ecosystem and help to pollinate plants and flowers just like bees.



Butterflies

Everyone loves butterflies, and it's easy to see why! Beautiful butterflies are more than just a pretty pair of wings. They play a crucial role in many ecosystems by spreading the pollen that plants and flowers use to breed. In fact, they are the second most important pollinator after bees! They adore eating nectar and come with their own drinking straw called a proboscis.

Butterflies begin life as an egg clinging under a food source like a leaf, and this egg hatches into a hungry caterpillar who eats everything in sight. They then make a special shell called a cocoon, and through a process called metamorphosis emerges completely changed into beautiful butterflies.
