Why is it called a butterfly?
"Some people call butterflies "flying flowers" because of their beauty. Why are these wonderful insects called butterflies? There are many possibilities, but no one knows for sure. Some say that people started using the phrase "flutter by" to describe how they fly, and that phrase was eventually corrupted into "butterfly." In England, many of these insects are yellow, like butter. Some people say that they were called "butter-colored flies, and that eventually got shortened to butterflies."
