Skipper butterflies fly so fast they could outpace a horse, but most butterflies fly at 5 to 12 miles per hour (8 to 20 kilometers per hour). Butterflies taste with their feet. A group of butterflies is sometimes called a flutter. Their eyes are made of 6,000 lenses and can see ultraviolet light. There are 165,000 known species of butterflies found on every continent except Antarctica. Many adult butterflies never excrete waste – they use up all they eat for energy. Despite popular belief, butterfly wings are clear – the colors and patterns we see are made by the reflection of the tiny scales covering them. Butterfly wings move in a figure “8” motion.
