Polydamas Swallowtail larva and eggs with dew - Battus polydamas

Polydamas Swallowtail larva and eggs with dew - Battus polydamas
Lakeland, Polk County, Florida, USA
July 28, 2012
Eggs on Dutchman's pipe vine. Saw the Polydamas butterfly visiting the vine and laying the eggs but I did not have my camera handy. I am raising twenty or so from this group in a habitat on the back patio and they are fascinating to watch their eating habits. They all stay clustered together in a group and seem to eat together.
