Butterflies of the World

Butterflies are notable for their unusual life cycle with a larval caterpillar stage, an inactive pupal stage, and a spectacular metamorphosis into colorful winged adult form. Most species are day-flying and their diverse patterns formed by their brightly colored wings and their erratic yet graceful flight makes butterfly watching a popular pastime. Some butterflies are known to migrate over large distances. Butterflies are important economically as one of the major agents of pollination. This deep blue butterfly was photographed in Callaway Gardens in Georgia.
