Today’s Tuesday Photo is of an adorable little skipper butterfly, courtesy of Shubhada Nikharge. And yes, it is taking a drink from what you think it is–bird poop. Bird droppings have a lot of nitrogen, as well as salts and other minerals that butterflies need. Think of it as a rather splatty vitamin suppliment. Most plants don’t have high salt or nitrogen in their tissues or nectar, so butterflies seek it out from other sources. A little factoid to enjoy with your morning coffee.
