fragile, adrift butterflies?

once i was enjoying a perfect day, no clouds, just catching flies, when noticed a monarch butterfly doing its typical wandering flying, at about 30 feet, when suddenly she began to circle and stopped flapping its wings...and began to climb fast. she had got a surface thermal, the kind of rising warm air, and in no time disappeared. i couldnt believe my eyes. no idea that they know how to make use of those currents.
then began searching and found some data that sounds like sci-fi at its wildest. just look:
then, as if that is not enough, i learned about other that go even further:
and we are superior species?
