monarchs and monsanto

???????????????????????????????

things i learnt today:
– butterfly wings have scales!
– butterflies can fly with just their two front wings- the rear ones are not essential
– butterflies are important pollinators of crops
– Monarch butterflies- (like the one pictured)- will likely soon end up on the US Endangered Species list, thanks to Monsanto and their herbicide, Roundup..
