Butterflies have four wings rather than two.
Speaking of wings, we may have purposefully saved the most fascinating butterfly information for last! Butterflies have four distinct wings, regardless of how they appear in motion or in drawings or paintings. The wings closest to its head are known as the forewings, while those farther back are known as the hindwings. During the flight, all four wings move up and down in a figure-eight pattern due to the strong muscles in the butterfly's thorax.
