Arizona Sister Butterfly (08/16/13) — Image by kenne

In deep shady canyons within the Sonoran Desert and more commonly at higher elevations the Arizona Sister
is a common and welcome sight. The caterpillars use a variety of oak species as a host plant.
In the photo at left there are two adult Arizona Sister butterflies drawing sap from a wound in the trunk
of an old oak tree. A closer look will also reveal two additional butterflies, well camouflaged.
The two are Asterocampa leilia, Desert Hackberry Butterfly.  arizonensis.org

“Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away bye bye”

Art is much less important than life,
but what a poor life without it.
