Butterflies and moths, which form the order Lepidoptera, are some of the most elegant and readily seen insects in summer in the Caledonian Forest. They have relatively short lives as adults, during which time they must mate, so they rely on high energy food, such as nectar from flowers, to power their flights. Although most moths are nocturnal, some species are active in the day, and are more subtly coloured than many butterflies.
