Joe, thanks for sharing the links! I had a large number of these butterflies in my garden this Summer feasting on the nektar from various mints and wondered where they came from, as they are very rare, even on the continent. I found out that they are myrmicaphilial, that is 'ant loving' and I have a large colony of red ants in the garden that I left to do there thing. Interestingly, the colony is next to a patch of marjoram and thyme! It is very humbling to know that an entire world of hidden beauty is pulsing beneath the soils of my garden. This has made my day! Jamie V. Cologne To keep it legal, I have some Veltheimia seedlings finally getting large enough to bloom. I seem to have two different species, as one is smooth-leaved and quite glaucous, while the other ruffled and shinny green. Fingers are crossed we get flowers.
