Rachel Interviews Mandy
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     "Good morning boys and girls. I'm Rachel Scott, the host of Bugs Beyond Belief. Today, we have a very special guest. This young lady seems to be in quite a hurry today, so we'll make the introduction short. Her name is Mandy, and she's a monarch butterfly."
 
2     "Hi, Rachel, it's good to be here. I am sorry to be so rushed."
 
3     "I understand you're a busy bee - I mean, butterfly. Why all the hurry?"
 
4     "Well, you may not know this, but I don't exactly live a long life. When I'm not trapped in a cocoon or eating fast, I'm flying thousands of miles. And we're not talking a first-class airline, either. It's just me and my wings."
 
5     "Let's start there, if we can. Tell us about your wings. I hope you don't mind my saying this, but they are really beautiful."
 
6     "Thanks, Rachel. They're the first things most people notice about me. My wingspan - the distance from the tip of one wing to the other - is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches. My wings are a deep yellow to orange, surrounded by black. The veins on my wings are also black. In the black areas around the edges of my wings are white spots."
 
7     "Do the male monarch butterflies look like you?"
 
8     "Mostly, yes, with one difference. They have a black dot on each of their wings."
