March 14 - Learn About Butterflies Day

Papilio Necklace by pepidesigns
 Did you know that...
...butterflies cannot fly if their body temperature falls below 86 degrees, so they often absorb heat through basking in the sun.
...butterflies can see red, green, and yellow.
...butterflies can taste leaves through their feet on contact, to determine if those leaves are potential places for them to lay eggs and provide food for the caterpillars.
...two butterflies flying together are a symbol of love in Chinese culture.
