They are called morpho, vulcan, death's-head sphinx, little peacock, devil's robin... With names like these, butterflies offer nature its team of superheroes. Some are capable of flapping their wings over 10,000 kilometres. Others can take on the appearance of an owl to scare off their enemy. Some can even make themselves invisible. Metamorphic, cunning, fighters, these Avengers of nature camouflage themselves behind their incredible beauty. How do butterflies, these insects that are thought to be so fragile and ephemeral, deploy these super powers? What are the secrets of these natural superheroes? Because although they may seem harmless, butterflies have indeed succeeded in conquering the world. Even to the point of inspiring us humans to do the incredible with what nature has to offer in a sober way.
