What does a butterfly see in a fresh stinking pile of horse manure??

"Butterflies need minerals, Especially males to develop sperm. We sometimes see butterflies, often in groups, sitting on sand, mud or manure, which provides them with valuable minerals. This is called puddling."

Ugh. They must have no sense of smell.

Hey, you asked!
