Enchanting Butterflies & Moths!

Butterflies and moths are possibly the most enchanting of insects, fluttering slowly with colorful and iridescent wings, like carefree woodland fairies.  They capture children’s imaginations, and even more so when they learn about their fascinating lifecycle and Olympian feats.  The 9000 km migration of the Painted Lady butterfly, or the 30 cm wingspan of the Queen Alexandra’s birdwing butterfly are just two of the butterfly facts that widen a child’s eyes with astonishment.

The Mourning Cloak butterfly is pretty awesome. It’s got these dark wings with yellow edges that look super cool. Unlike most butterflies that only live for a few weeks or months, this one can live up to a whole year! Also, it has a cool trick for winter – it hibernates, kind of like bears, which is really rare for butterflies. Because of this, it’s often one of the first butterflies you see when spring starts.
