I had beautiful sunday. I went to Los Angeles Arboretum. There I met this guy, bueatifully colored butterfly. Butterfly colors are much more than just pretty patterns. Complex coloration helps butterflies identify prospective mates and, in some species, serves as a warning to predators of toxins in the butterfly’s body. Some sneaky butterfly species mimic these warning colors to avoid being eaten. Cryptic coloration fools predators by allowing a butterfly or caterpillar to hide in plain sight.
