Waimaria butterfly life cycle

A butterfly starts  life as a little tiny egg.If you look closely you can see a tiny caterpillar.The mother usually  attaches the tiny egg on a leaf which will be food for the caterpillar.

When the egg hatches the caterpillar eats the leaf that it was born on. It needs to eat so it will grown quickly. When the caterpillar was born it was extremely small. When it  eats, it instantly growns.

As soon as  the caterpillar is done growning it changes into a chrysalis or a pupa. In the chrysalis the old body parts are transforming into a butterfly.This is called Metamorphisis.

When the butterfly first emerges both of the wings are soft. As soon as  the butterfly has rested it will pump blood into its wings. Later it will find a new partner and lay new eggs. This is when the butterfly life cycle will start all  over again.
