  •   my_butterfly_garden @thea_l8tr they are orange, and only the giant swallowtail has laid eggs on this tree I hope the kiddos enjoy! 6d
  •   moonmama77 Did you know the Giant Caterpillars are cannibalistic!? I freaked out when I read that.. then out of the 6 cats I had inside, no predators could get to them, only 3 survived to pupate...the others were eaten by their own siblings!?...yikes!!...then before those 3 pupated they ate 5 of the 7 eggs that were also on the same plant...now I have 3 chrysalis and 2 Giant cats. Can't wai for my firtst Giant Swallowtail to enclose...it has been 10 days...how long does it take Cort? 5d
  •   my_butterfly_garden So are monarchs. It takes a couple weeks unless they over wintered 5d

jigglywrath This one was the first one to take on its chrysalis state, and it's the second to last to hatch about 8 months later. This one has been by far the largest butterfly. Now I have just one left to hatch. #giantswallowtail #butterfly #spring 1w

joho1991 This is Georgia's most common wild azalea, Rhododendron canescens, of the 17 species statewide with the largest swallowtail butterfly we have feeding on it, Giant swallowtail, Papilio cresphontes. The giant has a predominantly yellow background on its underside and it's backside has yellow markings on black wings. Very beautiful and graceful butterfly and gorgeous and sweet smelling azalea that is blooming right now. #azalea #wildazalea #flowers #nectar #spring #wild #wildlife #wilderness #outdoors #rhododendron #canescens #papilio #cresphontes #giantswallowtail #swallowtail #butterfly #lepidoptera #insects #pollinator #nature #naturelover #naturehippys #naturesultans #southern #blooms #charltoncounty #georgia 1w
