30DOC – Origami Butterflies … WEDNESDAY Day 9
The Sunrise Sunset Butterfly
And my garden supplied color-cordinated blossoms to go with him.
Or her? How do you determine the sex of a butterfly? Looks like it’s time to visit the interweb again.
BEHAVIOR: The male butterfly covers his territory by flying the same flight pattern throughout the entire day. The female flies an erratic pattens continually searching for food.
SIZE! The female butterfly is always larger than the male.
APPEARANCE! The wing patterns is different on the male and female.
EGGS! Another way of telling the gender of a butterfly is to watch and see whether the creature lays eggs. If you catch a butterfly and keep it overnight, if she’s female, she likely will have laid a clutch by morning. If no eggs are present, the butterfly is presumably male.
And who says my blog isn’t educational?
