Default The Life Cycle of the Dainty Sulphur Butterfly

Jan Dauphin:
On April 3, 2010, I observed and photographed a Dainty Sulphur - Nathalis iole deposit an egg on the very common South Texas wildflower, Tiny Tim - Thymophylla tenuiloba. I collected the plant with the egg, brought it home to put into a bug box, and began a 22 day study of the tiny sulphur's life cycle.

"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
