the-awkward-turt: essence-of-nature: The way those wings move! Fun fact! Lepidopterans (butterflies and moths) and most other insects fly by flexing/deforming their thorax causing the wings to move. There aren’t actually any muscles attached to the wings themselves. Damselflies and dragonflies do have muscles attached directly to the base of the wings which is why they can fly Like That. Congrats you met Mothra
