Do you wonder why butterflies seem to chase one another?
There is a reason for that. Butterflies do not see images as we do, they see in pixels.
In order for them to know whom they need to fight with for territory or court with to mate with they chase the other butterfly. As they are chasing, the butterfly they are chasing is giving off pheromones. Pheromones help them to identify specie and if the same specie, sex.
