Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly. Starts as an egg on a pipevine plant, hatches as caterpillar (larva), eats pipevine plant, pupates, comes out as this beauty above.
And the lizard from yesterday's post is a Zebra-tailed. How do I know? Well, I am highly-trained naturalist #27, after all. But seriously, Greater Earless lizards have bars near their groin. G for groin, G for Great Earless. (Thanks to Larry Jones for that mnemonic.) Zebra-tailed Lizards have bars near their front legs - armpits, if you will. A for armpit means A Zebra-tailed!
