|The caterpillar first strung itself up, after that|
it stayed really still. About 24 hours later its skin
started turning transparrent.
|The caterpillar then starts moving for the first time|
in many hours. Slowly the skin begins to split at the
top of its head
|Gradually the caterpillar stops moving. It twitches |
occasionally but the movements get less and less.
|Approximately two weeks later. The butterfly has |
almost fully developed within. Its wings, as you can
see are now visible from within the chrysalis. In
a few more days the chrysalis will split open and...
well you know the rest.
