    I am curious as to why you would ask this question on a Theology board rather than simply using Google. "Where do butterflies come from" returns a page of results, even displaying on the results page:

    Where Do Butterflies Come From? Like so many other living creatures on Earth, the butterfly's life begins as an egg. Different species of butterflies lay different amounts of eggs. The eggs are tiny, only one to two millimeters, and are laid on a leaf of the host plant.Jan 9, 2012

    Thank you. Yes, caterpillars are a part of God's Creation. I realize that this is a Theology Forum. I had a question, so I asked. I knew to put it in the and the rest forum, but your idea to search Google myself is welcome, even potentially paradigm shifting.

    I wonder if the eggs are fertilized or if they simply bear caterpillars.

    Murdock: I think you should go back to your seat now, Joey. Right, Clarence?
    Oveur: Nah, he's not bothering anyone, let him stay here.
    Murdock: [shows his nametag] But just remember, my name is Roger Murdock. I'm an airline pilot.
    Joey: I think you're the greatest, but my dad says you don't work hard enough on defense. And he says that lots of times, you don't even run down court. And that you don't really try, except during the playoffs.
    Murdock: The hell I don't! [looks around to make sure no one is watching and grabs Joey by the shirt up close] Listen, kid. I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night! Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    LA Control Tower: Flight 2-0-9'er, you are cleared for take-off.
    Oveur: Roger.
    Murdock: Huh?
    LA Control Tower: L.A. departure frequency: 1-2-3 point 9'er.
    Oveur: Roger.
    Murdock: Huh?

    Oveur: What?
    LA Control Tower: Flight 2-0-9'er, clear for vector 2-3-4.
    Murdock: We have clearance, Clarence.
    Oveur: Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?

    Monarch eggs are about the size of the head of a pin and come to a point at the top. They're creamy-white in color and are covered with many ridges. Each butterfly egg has a hard outer shell which protects the developing larva and it’s lined with a layer of wax which helps keep it from drying out. When a female lays an egg, it's fertilized before being attached to the milkweed plant. Monarch eggs have tiny funnel-shaped openings at one end, called micropyles. Since eggs get their hard shell before they are fertilized, this hole, which penetrates all the way through the shell, allows sperm to enter.

    After an egg is laid it takes three to four days to hatch. (All stages of metamorphosis can vary in the length of time it takes because butterflies are cold-blooded or poikilothermic, meaning that their internal temperature changes depending on the environment.) The egg remains creamy-white until the monarch caterpillar’s black head capsule can be seen at the top, and within several hours the tiny caterpillar will chew its way out, only to turn and eat its own eggshell as its first meal.
