Butterflies have long fascinated humans. The ancient Egyptians, and later the Romans, believed they were symbols of the human soul. Today tourists flock to the Monterey peninsula and central Mexico’s Transvolcanic Belt to see the monarch masses overwintering there. This four-page color publication is designed to help you attract butterflies to your own garden—simply by accommodating their four stages of development: egg, caterpillar (or larva), chrysalis, and winged adult. Includes tables of larval food plants for particular species and of nectar sources (annuals, perennials, and shrubs) for adult butterflies.
