Butterflies are flying insects with beautiful large scaly wings, six jointed legs, three segmented bodies, a pair of antennae, compound eyes, and an exoskeleton. The body of the butterfly, which is covered with tiny sensory hairs, consists of three parts: head, thorax and abdomen (tail tip). It has four wings and six legs attached to its body and has muscles in its chest that can move them.

Butterflies with wings with many beautiful patterns can fly only if their body temperature is above 86 degrees. We must also explain that butterflies and moths are the only insects with scaly wings.

Butterflies appear as a name given to members of the squid. Their bodies are very sensitive and break in the event of a jolt. It is among those known to have around 165 thousand species. Also, another interesting piece of information is that females of some species do not have wings. Its colorful wings look great aesthetically. Wing sizes vary according to the existing type.

The period in the cocoon definitely deserves to be known. Because this curious waiting is quite different in that it is a harbinger of real change. During this period inside the cocoon, a creature that tears its shell and has a colorful shape and looks aesthetically wonderful will emerge.

However, there is a fact that a butterfly coming out of the cocoon does not mean that it can fly immediately. In other words, the vascular structure in the wings must first be filled with blood. In other words, it takes a certain period of time for this vascular structure to gain strength.

The working conditions of butterflies also vary according to their activity status. In other words, while night butterflies have thicker and heavier body lines, daytime butterflies rest at night and begin to fly during the day. But of course, nocturnal butterflies have hearing and smell, etc. Its organs are very sensitive and it would not be wrong to say that the males of some species can smell a female from miles away.

As for the reproduction of butterflies, the reproduction process takes place with eggs. Females lay their eggs on tree bark. As many people know, the larvae that emerge from the eggs are called "caterpillars". When summer comes, it comes out of its shell and starts looking for food. Caterpillars have three pairs of eyes and their mouths are miraculously covered with glands.

In addition, it should not be forgotten that some butterflies are poisonous and they have a very striking appearance. They fly very slowly and many animals do not want to eat them. In addition, non-poisonous butterflies take many different forms to protect themselves from their enemies and continue to survive in this way.
