Butterfly

Drawn 9/29/10

Depending on its species, a butterfly can live from only one week to up to a year.

As a butterfly ages, the color of its wings fades.

They use their bright colors to scare off predators or to attract potential mates.  You will often find them sunning themselves in the garden.  This is because their bodies need to stay warm to fly.  Butterflies feed off of sweet nectar of flowers.
