Banded Swallowtail - Papilio demolion demolion
Banded Swallowtail- Papilio demolion demolion
I love this butterfly because I think it's so pretty. One thing that I think is really interesting about this butterfly is the fact that it lays it's eggs on top of one another. So it looks like a beaded string. Here's the link I got the photo from. It also contains photos of the eggs.
This is the only Papilionid butterfly that I know of that lays its eggs like that.
