Amazing video with time lapse of the incredible transformation from caterpillar to butterfly right before your eyes. This timelapse footage is of a monarch butterfly starting from the caterpillar larvae and then forming its chrysalis in the pupa stage. Watch as it emerges as a magnificant butterfly in real time, climbing for a spot to dry its wings before it takes off. The music in the video is 'Blue Danube' by Strauss.
Another time lapse video showing the life stages of several Painted Lady Butteflies. Watch in real time as they transform from caterpillar pupa to mature adult.
