Insect #2

I spotted this butterfly landing on a huge flower it is about 1 to 2 inches long with colors of brown  and tan with orange spots on it. This butterfly can fly at about 12 mph. The butterfly feeds on the nector from flowers, the predators of butterflies are lizards, frogs and birds. The females lay eggs that attach to the leaf. once they hatch they are called catipillar larve once they reach their full size all they do is eat during this stage. The Catipillar forms pupa which while it is inside of this it forms into a butterfly
