Since a friend has asked me to draw some illustrations for his book, I looked for butterflies that might fit the need for the story that takes place in the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas.
Both the Vanessa butterfly and the Hedeoma Apiculatum Mint can be found in those mountains; the Vanessa butterfly loves the nectar of the mint.
I love painting insects and matching them with the food they eat. Science and art, and another Slice of Life.
