Butterflies are considered one of the most beautiful insects. The body of a butterfly is divided into 2 large sections—the body and wings. The body consists of a head, rigidly connected to the body. It has a round shape with a flattened nape.

Large eyes have a round or oval shape, and a complex structure that allows insects to distinguish some colors and perceive moving objects well. Butterflies have three pairs of thin legs. Butterfly wings covered with small scales. The size of the wings, color, structure depend on the type of butterfly.
