These are models for a signage project that we are developing for the Butterfly Grove down in Pismo State Beach.
Since early March, we’ve been sharing a work space with these critters, to capture all the fine moments of their growth and metamorphosis. We received 10 eggs, plus some further in their development for good measure. These photos show off some of the ones we’ve been nurturing since birth.
From top to bottom: Egg, Larvae (yup, their first meal is the egg shell), Caterpillar, Chrysalis
