    I guess I am not alone in admiring your artwork! I am Chair of a non-profit confer­ence, and we will be giving gift butterfly seed packets to atten­dees. The seeds will include Milkweed seeds for the Monarchs. Would it be possible to use the Monarch life cycle graphic above for our seed packets to help educate the people with whom we will be sharing the seeds?
    Thank you,

    Good morning.
    My daughter of 6 years has recently assigned to explain the butterfly on Friday, 26. We are in a rush, so I ask if we can use this beautiful picture. Thanks

    Can I use this for my home? Starting to explain to my little one the butterfly life cycle? Print and laminate and make 3 part cards.
    Thank you

    Hello Mr Mirocha,
    I am working in a publishing company that publishes school books. May I use the illus­tra­tion of the lifecycle of a butterfly in a book on science for Primary school?
