We always see these beautiful Monach butterflies with opened wings, or resting on some kind of colourful flower, and therefore it is great to see another side of it. You captured this "2 minute old" insect with great clarity and detail. All you’re waiting and preparing to capture it just in time paid off well and the end result is great. I said it many times before but have to repeat myself. Trek Nature is a wonderful site with not only beautiful photos but also photos with educational value. The last time I have seen a life cycle of an insect was in high school and that was many moons ago. Thanks for all the hours you have spent waiting to bring us this image. It is much appreciated.
Very TN photo and note. I've never seen moment of hatching of butterfly, it must be very exciting. Very good quality and details. I hope there will be more from this serie my friend!

An excellent record of the emergence of a Monarch butterfly from its chrysalis. The POV, fine light direction and use of tripod has resulted in a sharp image with good DOF in a great composition.
TFS this delightful image,

Nicely done Janice!
I've wanted to do this myself, thought of sending off for the mail order thing..
But life has pushed that idea aside..Not enough hours in the day.
Thank you for sharing this wonder,

A nice capture of this monarch butterfly's emergence from the pupa. Superb sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.
A perfect timing shot, the birth of this beautiful butterfly. Do you have the full butterfly photographed? Or was it "NO Way, No CHANGE"
Thanks for sharing and TFS BOB

Hi Janice, We had these hatching at home as school projects many years ago, it is still a miracle of nature to see it. Your crystal clear photo, and detailed notes are a delight to see and read. This is what TN is all about. TFS. Murray.

I hope you are OK and just out on holiday. I miss you great pictures. My granddaughter is into butterflies and this made a great learning tool for her. You have captured this miracle of transformation with great skill and clarity.
