Great Purple Hairstreak
All of the photographs on this website are of butterflies that occur in Caddo Parish, Louisiana.  The list at the left contains all of the species of butterfly that have been observed in Caddo Parish in taxonomic order.  Click on the name of a butterfly to view its pictures.  Many of the pages include photos of  butterfly eggs, caterpillars, and chrysalises when available.  Those species for which I don't have photographs are linked to text.  New photographs will be added as I take them.  Old ones will be replaced when I  have better ones. 

Click on the link Chart of Seasonal Occurences to find the flight times of any of the listed butterflies.  This chart is specific to Caddo Parish.
