Flutterby 5

This butterfly had just emerged from it's cocoon and it's wings had not moved yet. It was expected to move it's wings in a couple of hours. In the fuzzy background is the vacated remains of the pupae that have already hatched. From the butterfly house we visited during the first week of August.

A fascinating picture, Mary.

Another of nature's miracles revealed
Mary MacADNski: When in Ontario, my daughter in law has collected cocoons of monarchs and raised them till hatching. My grandchildren are lucky.
Good find Mary, fresh from the parcel.
Mary MacADNski: There were a few more cocoons, all at different sizes and stages of development.
Excellent shot Mary. I said to Maureen a couple of nights ago we haven't ever been to a butterfly farm, I must put it on our list of things to do.
Mary MacADNski: It was lovely with children and adults equally enthralled.

a fascinating image! I agree with Chris in that.
Mary MacADNski: As said to Chris, "When in Ontario, my daughter in law has collected cocoons of monarchs and raised them till hatching. My grandchildren are lucky."
The emergence of a butterfly from a pupa is one of nature's wonders Mary
