A Mourning Cloak Butterfly

Feeds on minerals.

Art Prescription:  For those of you who follow my blog you will remember the gem I found while walking at Mason Farm. It’s a Mourning Cloak Butterfly. They use their probiscus to feed on the minerals found in mud. This is why you often see a bunch of butterflies on a puddle.

Art Prescription:  Off to a busy Monday. I’ve been out to the farm caring for my Finn 6 out of the last 7 days. He is doing very well. Days are long, life is short… We painted feathers in todays art studio workshop.
