Where Do Butterflies Go When It Rains?
Rainy day activities for butterflies follow much the same pattern as rainy day activities for many children.
Butterflies are fragile insects that typically fly during warm, sunny days.
Watching butterflies during times when the sun comes in and out of clouds leads to the discovery that they often sit still, or disappear during cloudy periods.
Because of their fragile wings, in rainy times, butterflies seek shelter. Sometimes the shelter can be as simple as heading to the closest tree and folding their wings.
Other butterflies might hide under branches or the overhanging areas of roofs.
