With over 17,000 species of butterflies in the world, it’s likely we have all seen at least one. Fluttering through the air, poised on a flower sipping nectar, or basking in the sun on a rock.

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember they started out looking much differently. In this nature study, we will explore the different stages of the butterfly’s life cycle.
