Butterfly Life Cycles

I have raised butterflies for over 36 years. The pictures in this gallery show stages of the metamorphosis process in different species of butterflies. Not all stages are shown for each butterfly. This gallery is definitely a "work in progress." As I get new photos, I will add them and may substitute a better photo for an existing photo. My goal is to document as many species and stages as possible. At the present time, thirty-eight species are shown. All species are from my backyard or found locally. None of the eggs were purchased. Recently (2017), I have begun to put the photos for each species in its own gallery to simplify searching for a particular butterfly life cycle. I have also added adult images to each gallery.
