The Karner blue butterfly is one of the most diminutive (about the size of a nickle) and endangered of our butterfly species, having evolved dependant on one specific plant, the wild lupine. As this country plowed its prairie habitats for agriculture and cities and housing developments, the lupine and Karner blue populations crashed. Restoration plans are being implimented but it's always much more difficult and expensive to restore an environment than it is to destroy one.
