Life Cycles of a Butterfly

What is the egg? The egg is a tiny, round, oval, or cylindrical object, usually with fine ribs and other microscopic structures. The female attaches the egg to leaves, stems, or other objects, usually on or near the intended caterpillar food.
What is the larva stage? It is the long, worm-like stage of the butterfly or moth. It is the feeding and growth stage. As it grows, it sheds its skin four or more times so as to enclose its rapidly growing body.
What is the pupa stage? It is the transformation stage within which the caterpillar tissues are broken down and the adult insect's structures are formed. The chrysalis of most species is brown or green and blends into the background. Many species overwinter in this stage.
What is the last stage of the butterfly? The adult (or imago) is the colorful butterfly. It is the reproductive and mobile stage for the species. The adults undergo courtship, mating, and egg-laying. The adult butterfly or moth is also the stage that migrates or colonizes new habitats.
What is metamorphosis? The life cycle of a butterfly from birth to adulthood.
