Birth of a Monarch

Today’s post features a link to a 2-minute video I made a few days ago, as a Monarch butterfly was “born”, emerging from it’s chrysalis, in my indoor Monarch nursery. This video was captured in real time. To view this amazing process, click on this YouTube link:

Coming up … I’m now beginning work on making a couple of time-lapse videos, one of a Monarch egg as it hatches a Monarch caterpillar, and another one with a Monarch caterpillar as it transforms into a chrysalis.

All photos and videos were captured using a Canon 5DMK3 DSLR camera.
