Many species of butterfly; many different colors, shapes, and sizes. Once they are recognizable as butterflies (i.e., they have wings), they are adults. (And they are doing what adults do, namely, reproducing.) Bottom line: There are no 'baby' butterflies. Even the tiniest butterflies are adults. And they don't grow in the adult stage.
