The most beautiful of insects, the butterfly has long held the attention of artists and scientists alike. Eyewitness: Butterfly & Moth explores their world (and that of their less glamorous cousins). Watch caterpillars munch through vast quantities of greens, mummify themselves in cocoons, then emerge as glorious heralds of spring. But it's not all about pupation: watching the adults eat, unrolling their long proboscises to claim their drops of flower-food is worth the price of admission.
