The butterflies return during the months of December, January, and February to mate. Margarita says these events are beautiful to watch and that her neighbors in the area are proud to witness them. She is 56 years old and has a large family of ten children, five sons and five daughters. Eight of her children are already married and only two still live with her. Unfortunately, one child is disabled and requires treatments. Doña Margarita’s husband works as a carpenter in the community.
