More and more people are interested in butterflies these days. Now there is a word for people who study butterflies, it is called butterflying. It is becoming a fast growing outdoor hobby on a gorgeous sunny day.
Butterflies can be found in overgrown fields where there are a variety of wildflowers. Believe it or not mud puddles are an attraction to many types of butterflies. They can absorb salts from these places. You may also want to put out a sugar water feeder or some rotting fruit. Just a couple of ways to attract butterflies to your backyard.
If you decide to go butterflying just remember to pick a warm sunny day with little wind. Butterflies will stop flying when the weather is overcast, that's how much they like the sun.
