The purpose of this experiment was to find out if Monarch butterflies preferred a certain color.  I turned a black poster board into a tube.  On each side I put a different color of toile.  I started off a light and a dark color of toule.  I created a small doorway in the middle of the tube and put a butterfly inside.  Then I recorded the color landed on first.
