What is the flight style of a butterfly?

Butterflies are very good fliers. They have two pairs of large wings covered with scales. Their wings are attached to the thorax. Veins support the wings and ensure the blood supply.

Butterflies can fly only if their body temperature is above 27° Celsius. When it is cool, they expose the underside of the wings to the sunlight to warm themselves up. This activity is known as basking.

Butterflies have good control over their flight movements so that they can make sudden landings. Speed varies among butterfly species. Poisonous varieties are slower than non-poisonous varieties.
