Did you know there are over 20,000 species of butterflies?
They have wing spans that range from 1/4 of an inch up to 11 inches in width.
Sadly, many only live as long as a week, while others no more than a year.
Perhaps the best known butterfly, the Monarch, actually migrates from Mexico to Canada every year.
How to celebrate – Buy a book about butterflies and see how many different varieties you can spot. Visit a butterfly garden and just relax and enjoy. Make a butterfly garden of your own.
