BL WINTER BUTTERFLIES

I am lucky and live in South Florida, so I see butterflies a lot in the winter. Just today I saw a monarch. When I lived in CA>, I saw the monarch butterflies in migration in Santa Cruz. There were 100's of thousands of them and they clung to each other with their wings closed. They made the trees look like willows. Simply amazing!

MOURNING CLOAK

In Butterflies of North America, Jeffrey Glassberg describes the mourning cloak butterfly: "Above, there is nothing like a Mourning Cloak, with its plush brown velvety color, studded with royal blue and edged in ochre." It is, indeed, a handsome butterfly in its own right. But when you find a mourning cloak butterfly warming itself in the sun on one of the last days of winter, you may think it's the most beautiful sight you've seen in months.

Mourning cloaks are some of our longest-lived butterflies, with adults surviving as long as 11 months. By the end of winter, individuals may be noticeably tattered. On late winter days when the temperature is mild, they may emerge to feed on tree sap (most often oak) and sun themselves. Throw some bananas and cantaloupe on top of your garden compost heap, and you might find them enjoying a late winter snack.

Scientific Name: Nymphalis antiopa

Range: Nearly all of North America, with the exception of the Florida peninsula and the southernmost parts of Texas and Louisiana.

Habitat: Woodlands, stream corridors, urban parks

Adult Size: 2-1/4 to 4 inches

QUESTION MARK

Question marks like habitats with open spaces, so suburban butterfly enthusiasts have a good chance of finding this species. It's larger than other anglewing butterflies. The question mark butterfly has two distinct forms: summer and winter. In the summer form, the hindwings are almost entirely black. Winter question marks are mainly orange and black, with violet tails on the hindwings. The underside of the butterfly is drab, except for the contrasting white question mark symbol that gives this species its common name.

Question mark adults feed on carrion, dung, tree sap, and rotting fruit, but will visit flowers for nectar if their preferred diet is in limited supply. In some parts of their range, you can lure them out of hiding on warmer March days with overripe fruit.

Scientific Name: Polygonia interrogationis

Range: East of the Rockies, from southern Canada to Mexico, with the exception of the southernmost part of Florida.

Habitat: Wooded areas, including forests, swamps, urban parks, and river corridors

Adult Size: 2-1/4 to 3 inches

MILBERTS TORTOISESHELL

Milbert's tortoiseshell is simply stunning, with a wide orange band of color that gradually fades to yellow at its inner edge. Its wings are outlined in black, and the hindwings are usually marked with bright blue dots on the outer edge. The leading edge of each forewing is decorated with two orange marks.

Although the flight season for Milbert's tortoiseshells is May to October, overwintering adults may be seen in early March. This species can be plentiful one year and rare the next.

Scientific Name: Nymphalis milberti

Range: Canada and northern U.S. Occasionally migrates south as far as California, New Mexico, Indiana, and Pennsylvania, but rarely seen in southeastern U.S.

Habitat: Moist locations where nettles grow, including pastures, woodlands, and marshes.

Adult Size: 1-5/8 to 2-1/2 inches

CSG ~ Fruit of the Spirit, #8 Self Control

Self control as defined in the bible:

In the New Testament, the most common Greek word for self-control (temperance, KJV) is enkrateia. Its root meaning is "power over oneself" or "self-mastery." Self-control, in its widest sense, is mastery over our passions. It is the virtue that holds our appetites in check, controlling our rational will or regulating our conduct without being duly swayed by sensuous desires. Moderation is a key element in self-control.

Self control as defined in the dictionary:

Self control is defined as the ability to manage your actions, feelings and emotions. An example of self control is when you want the last cookie but you use your willpower to avoid eating it because you know it isn't good for you.

What does self control mean to me?

Self control means thinking before acting. It also means having restraint and doing things in moderation. It also means controlling your feelings and behaviors in order to make good decisions.

Self-control must be practiced in good and right things:

(1) eating

(2) pleasure

(3) work

(4) sleep.

Self-control must be practiced as Christians completely abstain from:

(1) fornication

(2) lying

(3) gambling

(4) drunkenness

(5) stealing.

Christians must control their temper.

\

How this scripture applies to my life:

A city without walls is vulnerable to any enemy who wants to attack or loot. In the same way, a life that does not have boundaries is vulnerable to any distraction or seduction that comes its way. Don’t give up on following God in your life. He will give you discipline and help you with your self control.

I hope you were encouraged by my comments. I pray that your life is also filled with self control God Bless You!

Blessings,

Yvonne

BL ~ Winter Butterfly Deco Swap #1

I hope you enjoy the winter butterflies that I am sharing with you!

The American Lady, Vanessa virginiensis

The American Lady, Vanessa virginiensis, inhabits North America from southern Canada through the entire United States, as well as the mountains of Central America, Colombia, and the Galapagos Islands. Typical habitat includes open areas with low vegetation, such as meadows, floodplains, vacant lots, and beach dunes. The larvae, unlike those of the Painted Lady, feed on a comparatively limited range of food plants. The preferred food sources are plants of the everlasting tribe of the Composite, such as sweet everlasting (Graphalium obtusifolium), pearly everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea), and plantain-leaved pussytoes (Antennaria plantaginifolia); they also feed occasionally on burdock (Arctium), wormwood (Artemisia), and ironweed (Vernonia). The dorsal side of the wings is orange-patterned, and a small white spot in the center of the cubital cell of the forewing is a distinguishing characteristic of this species. The American Lady can be most readily distinguished from the Painted Lady by the two large, black-ringed blue eyespots on the underside of the hindwing (Painted Ladies instead have five small submarginal eyespots). V. virginiensis' wing span varies from 53 to 67 mm; the male forewing length ranges from 2.4 to 3.0 cm (mean = 2.7 cm). Females are very slightly larger than males: forewing length ranges from 2.4 to 3.1 cm (mean = 2.8 cm). As do V. atalanta and V. cardui, V. virginiensis has distinct summer and winter forms. The summer form is larger and more brightly colored, whereas the winter form is smaller and paler, with reduced black markings. The number of broods varies from two in the northern part of its range to three or four in the southern U.S. Adults occur in every month in Mississippi and Florida, but it is uncertain whether or not they are reproductive there during the winter. Scott (1986) describes V. virginiensis as being "somewhat migratory." A northward migration was observed in Iowa and southern Ontario in spring 2001. Whether or not adults can survive cold winters is not clearly documented. Because V. virginiensis may not be able to overwinter in the northernmost states, migrants may need to recolonize much of the eastern U.S. each year.

The Painted Lady, Vanessa cardui

The Painted Lady, Vanessa cardui, is the most widely distributed butterfly in the world). It is found throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and Central America. It is not a permanent resident in the eastern United States, but quasi-periodically migrates there from the deserts of the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico. These migrations are sporadic and often enormous, and often follow rainy periods in these deserts. There are two subspecies: V. cardui cardui is found throughout North America south to Venezuela and throughout the Bahamas and Antilles; throughout Eurasia including India and Ceylon, and Africa including Madagascar. The other, V. c. kershawi, occurs in Australia and New Zealand and strays into Fiji. Hawaiian V. cardui adults are intermediate between the two subspecies, and both forms can develop from the eggs of a single female. V. cardui prefers open areas, including old fields, vacant lots, and gardens .In Iowa, V. cardui prefers more open areas such as prairies and fields, whereas V. atalanta prefers forest margins and park-like areas with more trees. Painted Lady larvae feed on a wide variety of host plants of the families Composite (especially thistles), Boraginaceae, Malvaceae (especially the hollyhock Althaea), common mallow (Malva neglecta), and a number of legumes including Iowa soybeans. The dorsal side of the wings is orange-patterned. On the underside of the hindwing are five small sub marginal eyespots. Females are generally larger than males. Male forewing length ranges from 2.5 to 3.3 cm (mean = 3.0 cm); female forewing length ranges from 3.0 to 3.4 cm (mean = 3.2 cm). V. cardui, like V. atalanta, has distinct summer and winter forms. The summer form is larger and brighter and has blue pupils in the submarginal spots on the dorsal hind wing. The winter form has entirely black wing spots. The number of broods in any one place may vary from year to year because it is not a permanent resident in most of the U.S.

The Red Admiral, Vanessa atalanta

The Red Admiral, Vanessa atalanta, is a common and cosmopolitan Holarctic butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. It inhabits North America from central Canada through the Mexican highlands to Guatemala. Typical habitat is rich, moist bottomland woods containing larval host plants such as stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) and false nettle (Boehmeria cylindrica). V. atalanta is typically found in sunlit forest openings or margins often in or near stream courses; in moist fields, in city parks, and on ridge tops. The dorsal side of the wings is dark brown to black. The forewing has small white apical spots and a prominent red-orange median band, and the hindwing has a red-orange marginal band. V. atalanta's wing span varies from 58 to 76 mm; the male forewing length ranges from 2.6 to 3.3 cm (mean = 3.1 cm). Females are slightly larger than males: forewing length ranges from 2.9 to 3.5 cm (mean = 3.2 cm). Although V. atalanta shows little morphological variation over its geographic range, it has distinct summer and winter forms. The summer form is larger and brighter, with an interrupted forewing band, whereas the winter form is smaller and duller in color. V. atalanta is double-brooded throughout most of its range. It is single-brooded in the northernmost United States and Canada, and triple-brooded in the southern states. In Iowa, V. atalanta is active from mid to late April to late September or early October. V. atalanta is seasonally migratory. It probably cannot survive colder winters in the northern part of its range, although adults hibernate successfully as far north as New York. It overwinters in the southern states, including south Texas and Florida.

Blessings,

Yvonne

EF ~ Animal Series #1, Polar Bear Deco Swap

I hope you like the pics and gifs that I've chosen for you!

I've seen the polar bears at the Philadelphia Zoo as pictured here.

The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses. It is a large bear, approximately the same size as the omnivorous Kodiak bear. A boar weighs around 350–700 kg, while a sow is about half that size. Although it is the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice and open water, and for hunting seals, which make up most of its diet. Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time on the sea ice. Their scientific name means "maritime bear" and derives from this fact. Polar bears hunt their preferred food of seals from the edge of sea ice, often living off fat reserves when no sea ice is present. Because of their dependence on the sea ice, polar bears are classified as marine mammals.

Weight: 771.62 pound (350 kg) – 1,543 pound (700 kg) (Male) · 330.69 pound (150 kg) – 551.16 pound (250 kg) (Female)

Scientific name: Ursus maritimus

Height: 48.03 inch (122 cm) – 62.99 inch (160 cm) · 52.36 inch (133 cm) on average (Male) Length: 94.49 inch (240 cm) – 118.11 inch (300 cm) (Male) · 70.87 inch (180 cm) – 94.49 inch (240 cm) (Female)

Speed: 3.48 mph (5.60 km/h) on average (Walk) · 6.21 mph (10 km/h) (Swimming)

Tail length: 2.76 inch (7 cm) – 5.12 inch (13 cm)

I don't know what you think, but I think they are one of the cutest animals around. I tried to post a video here but it wouldn't work. If you really like polar bears I would recommend watching some videos. They will make you like them even more.

Blessings,

Yvonne

CSG- fruit of the spirit swap rarjones

2 Self-control to me means not doing (saying) what my feelings/emotions are guiding me to do(say) – being spirit led and not flesh led.

3 Proverbs 25:28 in the MESSAGE paints a thought provoking picture of life without self-control:

A person without self-control is like a house with its doors and windows knocked out.

4 Can you imagine a day to day life in your own home with no windows – no doors? The weather elements coming right thru no matter what they were… people able to look deep within your personal life as they walk by – stray animals with the freedom to wander within as they please. Leaves me with the thought of someone who is extremely vunerable to whatever comes their way. A very easy target for the enemy to use. I find I quickly begin to pray within my thoughts for strength and calm and the Lord who is always faithful somehow brings me back to focus and I can relinguish whatever it was that I found so upsetting/controlling over to Him.
