Default Metamorphosis

I know I cheated, but I have tried all summer to photograph a Wanderer butterfly in the garden. Next best was to watch it emerge. Unfortunately I was too late to catch the caterpillar before it pupated.

Fantastic...maybe next year you can grow several in a terrarium...and 'wait it out'.
Then time lapse them. Great shots though all around.

Not to hijack the thread, but to add to the sequence...

Last Summer, I found several Monarch butterflies to shoot, but getting good shots was very difficult. I did manage to get a "bunch" (~25) from one butterfly that were good. Later in the season, I found a Monarch caterpillar (again, many good shots -- not very active!), the forerunner to the chrysalis (shown in the first image). I tried to find one to shoot, but never found one (have seen them in captivity, after finding the caterpillar - a friend "harvests" about 25 every year for homeschooling exercises).

Here is the Monarch in two stages, the fully developed butterfly, and a caterpillar.

Full disclosure - not shot with an FZ35. Looking forward to using the FZ35 on these subjects this Summer!
