Mating Butterflies

July 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The Tawny Emperor butterflies are beginning their mating flights among the Hackberry trees. Ten to twenty pairs can be seen flying around each tree throughout the park. The Hackberry is the host plant for this butterfly; meaning the female will lay eggs on the leaves and when hatched, the caterpillars will feed on the leaves.
