Windy Wednesdays: Butterflies


Margie: Friends, today is Learn About Butterflies Day. I love our butterflies and I enjoy sitting on the porch just watching all the colors and varieties. How much do you know about these beautiful creatures?

Did you know that butterflies can see red, green, and yellow? That's more than Edna can see on a good day.

The top butterfly flight speed is 12 miles per hour. Some moths can fly 25 miles per hour! They go as fast as the gentlemen getting away from Edna.

Butterflies and insects have their skeletons on the outside of their bodies, called the exoskeleton. This protects the insect and keeps water inside their bodies so they don’t dry out.

Sakes alive, I'd best go get some water so my body won't dry out. Go read about butterflies:
