10 Lines on Butterfly: The most beautiful and attractive, brightly coloured winged insects in our garden are none other than the butterflies. They fly around flowers and have long wings with scales on them. It’s surprising to note that these flying creatures have six legs, all of which are jointed, a pair of antenna and significant eyes. The entire body is divided into three divisions – the head portion, thorax and the abdominal region. Butterflies have four wings that aid them in flying, and they are connected to the thoracic part of the body. Butterflies live on the nectar obtained from flowers. They come in different hues and have sensory hair-like structures on their outer body. The thoracic part contains muscles for the movement of legs and wings.
