Viceroy Butterfly (Limenitis archippus) - 02
(Viceroy Butterfly (Limenitis archippus) - 02) The caterpillar stage of the viceroy butterfly can most often be found on trees of the willow family, such as willows, poplars and cottonwoods.  The male viceroy can also be seen during the day flying around these host trees looking for a female viceroy butterfly or perched on other vegetation.  The female viceroy butterfly lays her eggs at the tip of the host tree leaves, but only two or three eggs are laid by her before she moves on to another tree.  This is obviously a way of insuring that a maximum number of her offspring will survive.  This requires a degree of intelligence that we humans all too often fail to accept exists in other creatures.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
