The Mission Blue Butterfly is a tiny little guy. His wing span is just one inch. The butterfly depends solely on three species of perennial lupine for its reproduction, the varied lupine, silver lupine, and the summer lupine. The Mission blue requires the lupine to lay their eggs and nourish the larvae. Without these species, it cannot reproduce and cannot survive. Mission blue's habitat parallels that of the lupine species.
It's available for now in two sizes: 5X5 Inches and 8X8 Inches; printed onto hand torn Arches watercolor paper.
