2. Monarch Butterflies 

Monarch in clover

Aren’t you glad you don’t have to walk in your food to taste it?

Monarch butterflies smell with their antennae and taste with their feet.

Their taste sensors are 2000 times more sensitive to sugar than humans. Their antennae are 5000 times more sensitive to smell than human noses.

Were these sensitive and delicate instruments designed, or did they come together by random chance?

Orange-winged monarchs were named after William of Orange, King of England and stadtholder of Holland in the 1600s. They are 1.5-inch long, half-gram insects. Each of four wings has 1.4 million scales filled with air for flight buoyancy.

Who designed these complex wings? Who designed the flight control system?

Read the prequel in this series on Monarch Butterflies and their significance for the creation/evolution controversy:

3. Caterpillar or Butterfly—Which Was First?

Soli Deo Gloria.
