[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Queen Butterfly (Danaus gilippus) is a North and South American butterfly with a wingspan of 2.75–3.25" (70–88mm). Females lay small white eggs singly on plants. The egg hatches into a black caterpillar with transverse white stripes and yellow spots, and three pairs of long, black filaments. The caterpillar feeds on the milkweed and sequesters chemicals that make it distasteful to some predators. It then goes through six instars, after which the larva finds a suitable spot to pupate. The adult emerges 7 to 10 days afterwards. D. gilippus has multiple generations a year.
