Another caterpillar completed its transformation into a chrysalis this afternoon. I saw the caterpillar hanging early in the morning, so I went out once an hour to photograph it, trying to catch its metamorphosis in pictures. What I now know is that the main caterpillar-to-chrysalis transformation takes place in about 5 minutes! I was lucky enough to catch the tail end, when the chrysalis is mostly formed but the top is not yet complete.
An amazing website documents the whole butterfly lifecycle. Read about it here.
