Pipevine Swallowtail and California Pipevine Giclée Print
Battus philenor and Aristolochia californica
Beautiful pipevine swallowtails (Battus philenor) with their host plant, California pipevine (Aristolochia californica). These butterflies lay their eggs on the pipevine; larvae eat the leaves, making them unpalatable and giving them life-long protection from predators. This painting is one in a series of insects and host plants.
This 5.5” x 5.5″ giclee is printed with archival inks onto matte archival art paper (there is a white border around the image to allow for framing). It’s backed by foamcore board, and signed in pencil on the front.
Size (Unmatted, in Inches): 5.5″ x 5.5″
