If you've ever considered memorizing all of the different species of butterflies, it might take a little longer than you expected. Those species that are usually found in the lower 48 states of the United States would be a good place to start. Still, that figure is close to 575, so we recommend making note cards or focusing on the butterflies you see in and around your yard this spring and summer.
