    Hmmm…I would suspect butterfly hanky panky.

    maybe they’re too scared to fly alone. ;)

    It is in part about predator prey. It is also in part about mazimazing food opportunities.

    The predator prey thing is a tactic where in the individual has a better chance of getting thru hostile territory if there are others out to take the hit. This is more about continuance of the species than continuance of the individual.

    The food thing is about jumping in while the food available. Butterflys, until Bees, have not evolved a method for telling everyone else where the food is.

    It just sounds like their horny little buggers. I used to catch them when I was little. I once caught almost 50 of them at a time when I was a kid only to let them go all at once. It was way cool!
