Gulf Fritillary Butterfly

Agraulis vanillae

Description:

I found a Gulf Fritillary caterpillar, on one of its host plants, in my outdoor butterfly garden. I then took this caterpillar inside my house, and put it inside one of my terrariums. I waited for it to turn into a pupa, and then I waited for the pupa to eclose. After the pupa eclosed into a butterfly, I took some photos of it.

Habitat:

I found this Gulf Fritillary caterpillar, on one of its host plants, in my outdoor butterfly garden. At home in most open, sunny habitats, it frequents roadsides, disturbed sites, open woodlands, fields, pastures, yards, and parks.

Notes:

I reared a Gulf Fritillary caterpillar, until it eclosed, and turned into a bright, orange butterfly.
