A new life

Best View Large On Black

 

3 minutes elapsed between the 1rst and the 12th picture

 

All those pictures were taken hand held with my canon powershoot . Some are not in perfect focus but there is only one take... It all came so fast and by surprise. I thought this chrysalis had a few more days before becoming an adult butterfly .

In the last picture I placed the butterfly next to one which had hatched an hour before . Unfortunately the one on the right ( whose story is pictured above) has deformed wings and will not make it !
