When it comes to fascinating things, nothing beats Mother Nature. Turns out, it not only gives us the most dramatic landscapes or strange-looking animals, but it even gives us one of the weirdest sounds in the world. A man recently recorded millions of butterflies flapping their delicate wings and the sound they make is something he has never heard before!
Butterflies are definitely one of the most fascinating creatures on our planet, and the monarch butterfly is without a doubt the most enchanting species. In winter, these graceful creatures provide one of the largest mass migrations on earth. Millions and millions of them find their way to Mexico and California to enjoy the warm sun until spring arrives and they all return home.
Recently, nature lover Phil Torres wondered, “How many butterflies does it take to make noise in the forest?” And he soon he got the answer from him: millions of them. Needless to say, the sound they make sounds out of this world. Phil captured a huge swarm of monarchs flapping their wings in a Mexican forest and the result is simply amazing.
Unfortunately, like so many others, these magnificent creatures are listed as an endangered species. Unfortunately, the monarch butterfly population has declined by more than 25% in the last year alone, as climate change and pesticide use are blamed.
