Hola Hernán,
Este es uno de los documentos que más me gusta ver. Estas transformaciones me han fascinado -y siguen fascinandome- desde niño. Un gran reto para Darwin, algo más complicado que el alargamiento del cuello de las jirafas.
Te agrazco la publicación.
Abrazos, José M.

Bravo Hernàn! Ademàs de muy buenas fotos nos estàs dando una clase de Biologìa.
Muy interesante e instructivo.

Hello Hernan,
Great presentation, I've learned something new today.
I saw the larva here two weeks ago and wondered what they were..and now I know ;)
I've got a shot of one just after molting its outer skin.
Well done & Thank You!

Hello Hernan,
C'est un assemblage très instructif, il faudrait le montrer au cours de biologie. Est-ce que cette coccinelle est la même qui se développe en Europe aux dépens des espèces indigènes?
Meilleures salutations

Hi Hernan.
You have carried out the whole scientific research with fine illustrations. Every shot is perfect sharpened, coloured and exposed. POV is selected very well, DOF is excellent everywhere. Great work and TFS.

Ya me puedo retirar que tengo buen discipulo en las artes de mostrar estas secuencias Hernan... excelente seguimiento de esta maravilloso milagro de la naturaleza.
Buenos detalles en general con foco y nitidez.
La metamorfosis de la bestia en la bella... un gran hallazgo bien retratado.
Cordiales saludos... Ricardo

Hi Hernan

This is a very beautiful and educational post!
It's amazing to see how these little creatures change shape so fast and so drastically and you managed to contain all that in this little collage.
The details are great and very sharp (considerring the size of these Coccinelidae) and the colors are natural, lovley and well saturated.
Splendid work.

Bravo and TFS

Very informative collage Dear Hernan! A documentary with very good, sharp macros. To me it's a little difficult to imagine the transition between the fifth and the final pictures. Great work.

Hola Hernán, gran trabajo, buenos detalles y magnífico seguimiento... saludos

WOW !!
jamas habia visto esta secuencia...es decir desde que son orugas. Y bueno, es el mismo caso de las mariposas, son hermosos cuando crecen !!!.... jejejeje....

Buena presentacion... y DOF de cada foto.


That is a wonderful story, I never knew what they started out looking like! So nice to show this!!!!

Magnifica composição, Hernan,
Bem no estilo do TN.

Hello Hernan,

Beautiful composition. I see that you have also the first stage of the pupa, when it is yellow and orange. That does not take too long before it becomes orange and black afterwards.
Well done,
