Abstract: The world of insects has always fascinated mankind and offered him the opportunity of learning and discovering the ways and means adopted by them in their struggle for survival. Butterflies are delicate, colourful insects having two pairs of wings covered with scales. On warm sunny days they can be seen fluttering from flower to flower, sipping nectar, searching for a mate, or simply sunning their life away. Nineteen species of butterflies breed in our Islands. These butterflies represent six different families, and they are divided in two groups: the resident butterflies, and those which though breeding in our Islands, are sometimes augmented by migrants, while these are on their way to other countries.
