With names like blue morpho, red admiral, death’s head hawkmoth, small emperor moth, and comma, butterflies make up nature’s own team of superheroes. Some can beat their wings over distances of more than 10 000 kilometers. Others can take on the appearance of an owl to scare off enemies.
How do butterflies – these insects reputed to be so fragile and ephemeral – deploy these super powers? What are the secrets of these superheroes of nature? They may seem inoffensive, yet butterflies have conquered the world. This series, the first ever dedicated to butterflies, takes us on a stunning journey of discovery to explore their unknown super-powers. You will never look at butterflies the same way again!
