Butterflies learning to fly

My husband and I went on a hike in the Red River Gorge on the weekend. We stopped by this stream because we saw a group of butterflies on the ground and many more flying over the water.
After watching one little butterfly sort of hop and flop around, I thought "he's not a very good flier"... but then I realized that it's spring! And all of these butterflies are learning to fly for the first time! Imagine how they must feel, getting the hang of it and then flying through the air! So cool!
