How Do Butterflies Fly?

Answer

Butterflies fly because of how their bodies are structured. Their bodies have four wings that are not joined together but are all attached to the thorax. They also have a thorax that has extremely strong muscles. The four wings move in a special figure eight movement which allows more force against the air.
