Butterfly Life Cycle - Pipevine Swallowtail

I'm posting this video as a winter time reminder. Many butterflies and moths over winter in the crystals stage, often times they're still attached to the host plant. It's best to wait until late March or April before clearing up the garden to help these caterpillars survive. You may find you'll have more early butterflies that way.

This is also part of a good time-lap series. Other videos from the author are also worth watching.
