Whisper Calls

Image #210823

A Zebra Longwing butterfly lays eggs on a Corkystem Passion-flower vine, the host plant for the caterpillar stage of the Zebra Longwing’s life.

He said, “I look for butterflies
That sleep among the wheat;
I make them into mutton pies,
And sell them in the street.
I sell them unto men,” he said
“Who sail on stormy seas;
And that’s the way I get my bread –
A trifle, if you please.”

—excerpt from Alice Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Caroll
