Birth of an exquisite beauty.

Watch a monarch butterfly emerging from her chrysalis –


This exquisite monarch butterfly transformed herself from a caterpillar in just 2 weeks!!

Silently she slid from her chrysalis, wings crumpled and folded. Her fat abdomen pumped fluid into her wings which imperceptibly unfolded and expanded. Feeling her way into the world as a transformed being she stayed adjusting to her new life for a couple of hours before her maiden flight.

Up over my head she flew and I imagined her reveling in her new found freedom – wow!! What a thrill – bouncing on the gentle air currents she circled, floating back past me in a gesture that I felt was full of gratitude!

Having watched over her from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly – I was thrilled!
