Some male butterflies defend specific mating sites, e.g. sandy patches (Hipparchia semele) or plants (Ochlodes venata). When perching within its territory, a male orients the body axis and tilts its wings and body in order to control the body area exposed to the sun, and thereby keeps its body temperature (Tb) as close to a preferred level as possible. In accordance with a model presented here, these behaviours can be separated into three successive phases. At low temperatures, the males… Expand
