dylanaxolotl Shoutout to @natureispowerful for these #giantswallowtail caterpillars. A lot of drama happened as someone unpacked it without telling anyone but it was okay. 4d

mrreilly_and_friends What we think is our giant swallowtail has finally formed it's chrysalis. It looked like bird poo through all its instar stages and as a pupa. Can't wait to see the beautiful butterfly that emerges. #giantswallowtail #swallowtail #metamorphosis #butterfliesofinstagram #butterfly #genetics #naturalvariation #colorvariation #biology #colorgrid #whatisit #urbanfarm #raiseandrelease #citruspest 5d

knowtheflowers A little while ago the most beautiful swallowtail butterfly was hovering over and around Ollie as he stood by our mandarin tree. We both watched in awe, Ollie said it looked like a pretty piece of paper floating around us. We watched as she hovered over the tree, alighting here and there, laying single, tiny brown eggs on the leaves. After she finished, she flew away. We were looking closely at the eggs, when we saw these big caterpillars! They look exactly like bird poop. Ollie was thrilled #giantswallowtail #giantswallowtailcaterpillar 1w
