Butterflies and moths come in all sorts of shapes and colours. The colours and patterns of their wings can serve different functions. Think about the colour of your chosen butterfly or moth - how might this help them survive? Are they camouflaged or do they stand out? Do they have patterns such as eye spots that may be used to scare predators away?
