Butterfly Wings and Big Raindrops

Imagine if you will a butterfly doing butterfly stuff on a nice sunny day. Suddenly, a cloudburst! Those drops of rain are mighty huge when compared to a butterfly. You might expect that it would be pummeled to the ground along with many others of its type. Not happening, Hoss.

Detailed research reveals that the Master Engineer equipped fragile butterfly wings to withstand the pummeling of raindrops.

With extreme magnification, it has been revealed that the Master Engineer has designed those delicate wings to take the punishment. Many factors must be in place so the insect can survive, but the best you'll get from Darwinists is along the lines of invoking the Stuff Happens Law. That's not science.
Okay, I admit most folks have probably not thought to ask this creation question. But a bigger question gets answered when we examine the fantastic butterfly features that counter the force of falling raindrops.
Butterfly wings are quite thin. How do these tiny creatures cope with raindrops that land at 22 miles per hour [35.41 KPH]? Cornell scientist Sunghwan Jung led a project that tested water drop impacts at real raindrop speeds. It turns out that special surface structures on butterfly wings manage the drop impacts, which Professor Jung compared to the force of bowling balls falling from the sky on humans!
How do these special surfaces manage killer raindrops?
It won't strain your brain to read the rest of the article. To continue, sink your proboscis into "Why Don't Raindrops Bomb Butterfly Wings?"
