    Default Another Butterfly Story

    This is the life cycle of the Orange Barred Sulphur butterfly. A beautiful butterfly that frequents my Cassia bush which is where it lays it's eggs. A very strong flyer I saw this 3 1/4" sulphur this AM in the strong winds of TS Alberto visiting the cassia. This cycle from egg to butterfly lasted a little over 2 weeks.
