Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) developmental series
Hi Lisa Anne and Daniel,
Glad to see that you are keeping up your great work with your website. Last year I submitted some picture series about the development of butterflies. This year I would like to share my Giant Swallowtail shots with you.

I found 6 caterpillars on Prickley Ash during the summer in Wisconsin, and breeding this species is a wonderful experience. My girlfriend Megan will be delighted to see “her” caterpillar on your page, which she got as a present from me to encourage her slightly increasing interested in bugs. Keep up the great job! Best wishes from Madison/Wisconsin,
Thomas Werner

Hi Thomas,
Thanks for sending us your wonderful Giant Swallowtail metamorphosis images.
