A female Apache Fritillary (Speyeria nokomis apacheana) is placed on a plastic cap filled with 10% sugar and water solution and nudged until she senses it with the "taste buds" on her feet and begins feeding. She uncoils her tongue and feeds for about 90 seconds. She is one of two females taking part in the Apache Fritillary life cycle documentary (just started) to be finished some time next year (with luck!).

The soundtrack is "Cold Fusion (CD Ver*)" from the "TimeShift" CD by Technician (yours truly), album and single track available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/time... full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com
