In Palm Beach and Broward Counties in South East Florida, three
butterflies will lay eggs on your
Butterflies. I've put the
butterflies, chrysalides, and caterpillar photos together on this page
so you can compare them more easily.
The Zebra lays her eggs in clusters. The Gulf lay their eggs scattered
across the vine. Visit my other pages on them to see their eggs and lots
of other photos.

I have at least one page on each of these butterflies (linked above).

Have a look at my home
page, and click any of the butterflies, these three included, to see the
first page on them. Each of those pages links to the rest, and they all
have this handy sitemap at the bottom.
