  • Created By M. Mount

The Butterfly                                  
The Antenna
  • A butterfly has 2 antennae on its head.
  • They are skinny with little knobs on the end.
  • Butterflies use their antenna to smell flowers,
    plants, and other butterflies.

The Eyes
  • A butterfly has two compound eyes - lots of
    little eyeballs grouped together. Each eyeball
    sees a little part of what the butterfly is
    looking at. It's like looking through a bunch of
    straws bundled together. Butterflies can see
    colors. They look for flowers and plants and
    other butterflies!

  • A proboscis is like a long tongue or drinking
    straw. The butterfly uncoils its proboscis and
    sips up flower nectar or fruit juice.

The Legs
  • Butterflies have 6 legs (3 pairs). Butterflies
    taste with their feet! That's how they find
    flower nectar and the best plants to lay their
    eggs. "Brush-footed" butterflies (mourning cloak,
    painted lady, monarch) look like they have only 4
    legs. The two front legs are small and covered
    with small hairs. They hold these legs up by
    their head.

  • The thorax has strong muscles that help the
    butterfly move its legs and wings.

    sides of the abdomen.

The Wings
  • Butterflies have 4 wings 2 hind wings and 2
  • Butterflies with long narrow wings can fly very
  • Butterflies with larger wings can float and glide
    in the air.
  • Butterflies use their wings to soak up the sun's
    rays when the weather is cold.

The Scales
  • Tiny colorful scales cover the both sides of a
    butterfly's wings.
  • Scales with different colors make patterns and
    designs on the wings. These patterns are almost
    the same on the left and right wings, but
    patterns are very different on the front and back
    of the wing.
