A butterfly feeds on the stem of plants in Guangyuan county on August 13, 2010 in northern Sichuan province. Butterflies feed mostly on nectar from flowers, while some derive nourishment from pollen, tree sap and rotting fuit with a life cycle consists of four parts; egg, larva, pupa and adult. While important as pollinators for some species of plants, butterflies in general do not carry as much pollen load as bees. AFP PHOTO/Frederic J. BROWN (Photo credit should read FREDERIC J.
