Monarch Butterfly Drawings

Monarch Butterfly Metamorphosis- Color in the monarch in each of its butterfly stages from egg, to caterpillar, to chrysalis, to vibrant adult.

Monarch Butterfly Male- Notice the spot on each hind wing. This black spot is only present on males. On smaller males, it can be difficult to see.

Monarch Butterfly Female- They have thicker wing veins which makes them a little "showier" than the males. They also appear a little darker, but that may be an optical illusion from the veins.

To get some ideas on how to color in the monarchs above, check out our page about butterfly wings.

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly Drawings

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly- this butterfly is mainly yellow and black with a few red and blue markings at the bottom of both hind wings.
