how stupid of me; to think I was the only flower in your garden.
The Atala, a butterfly once considered extinct
Eumaeus a tala (Lycaenidae) was once considered extinct but a few small colonies are now known to exist as residents of North America only in the most southern part of Florida. It ranges to the Bahamas, where there are larger colonies, Cuba and the Isle of Pines.Habitats are subtropical brushy areas and hammocks, mostly in pinelands.
Host plants are restricted to a small number of shrubby, fernlike and poisonous Zambia species (Cycadacae). Eggs are laid on the host plant in clutches with usually a dozen, but up to 50 eggs per clutch.
The atala is a great example of aposematic (warning) coloration throughout its life cycle. The brightly colored larva or caterpillar feeds on cycads which contain a toxic secondary plant chemical (“cycasin”) which it retains in its body for life. Birds, lizards, and other animals may attempt to prey on the larva, pupa, and adults, but find them distasteful and learn to avoid these brightly patterned insects.
have you ever sat with your friends and just known that you’re the least important friend in the group and you feel like it wouldn’t make a difference whether you were there or not
you don’t realize how attached you are to someone until you go without talking to them for a bit
I’m that type of friend you can tell anything to but I won’t know how to respond and will probably just pat you on the head
