I saw this little creature on Friday's hike up Robertson Mountain. In fact, I saw a lot of them. Can you guess what it is?
You have at least a million picks
Because my legs add up to six
There are some insects you might fear
But fear not when I flutter near
Because I neither sting nor bite
So there's no reason for your fright
In fact I often cause delight
For my colors are very bright
Despite my name I don't like butter
It's after nectar that I flutter
I'm mostly black but with some blue
With orange and red I am marked, too
OK - I think you know the general type of animal I saw. Getting the exact species will be tough because there are a lot of variations with this color. In found a number of different ones when I Googled it. So take your best guess
Red spotted purple butterfly
Is what I am - a handsome guy!
I saw many butterflies on the hike of several different species, but I saw more of these than anywhere else. I especially saw them after crossing a stream as they gathered on moist earth, I assume to get a drink.
