Nature never ceases to amaze. I think my favorite part is the role the bacteria plays. Is it possible it (or one of the wasps) acts as a genetic reservoir for the butterflies during population bottlenecks?

Great to see you again, Caution! I think your avatar sort of underlines how long it's been since you've been active Smile

For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.”

I meant to welcome you, too, Caution. But I left the thread briefly, and then couldn't find it again.

Glad to see you. Hope you show up and become a regular.
