1: Birth of a Butterfly

3: The life of a butterfly starts with just one egg. Butterfly eggs are fixed to a leaf with a special glue which hardens rapidly. As it hardens it contracts, in the shape of the egg. This stage lasts only a few weeks.

4: This is the second step in a butterflies life. This is called a caterpillar | They are also known as butterfly larvae

5: Butterfly caterpillars have three pairs of true legs from the thoracic segments and up to 6 pairs of prolegs arising from the abdominal segments. | These prolegs have rings of tiny hooks called crochets that help them grip the substrate.

6: This stage is often a called a cocoon, but the proper name is the Chrysalis. This is the pupa stage of a butterfly

7: At this point the caterpillar has made its final molt into a pupa and in about 1-2 weeks an adult butterfly will emerge.

8: The adult butterfly will spend its time eating nectar and mating/laying eggs. Many butterflies only live about 2 weeks, however, some species such as the monarchs will migrating south over winter and will live for many months.
