Butterflies aren't born as we recognize them–they go through a process called metamorphosis to change from a caterpillar to a chrysalis to an adult butterfly.
See live butterflies, moths, and chrysalises at the American Museum of Natural History's Butterfly Conservatory, opening October 7, 2017.
Generous support for The Butterfly Conservatory has been provided by the Eileen P. Bernard Exhibition Fund.
