In fine weather we find butterflies flitting about in the garden but when it rains they seem to disappear. When there is a shower, butterflies settle on the stems of flowers or stalks of grass with their head down and wings folded over their back. In this position, only the pale underside of the wings is seen and is hardly noticeable compared to the gay, vivid colours and patterns of their outstretched wings in flight. So we feel that butterflies disappear in the rains.
