The last of my caterpillar babies pupated like a champ and I got better time lapse footage this time! The reason you don't often see the transformation is because most of the process is internal - the caterpillar changes slowly from the inside out and then suddenly wriggles free of its skin in a few seconds. The change from cocoon to majestic monarch is equally dramatic. . . . . #bugsofinstagram#caterpillar#monarch#monarchbutterfly#nature#wildlife#science#entymology

If you're walking through the gardens, keep an eye out for this young lady I met today. She's a little smaller and slower than the other duckies, so think about stopping by the information centre to pick up some healthy duck food for her. . . . #greyduck#duck#wildlife#dunedin#botanicalgardens#onelegwonder

I'm so grateful for the wonderful people who made me feel loved and special on my 30th birthday. I'm so lucky to have people care about me even though I find it hard to reach out to people. . . . #lush#whitenights#fabriano#kolinskysable#conte#carandache#winsorandnewton#jacksonsart#thefrenchartshop#gordonharris

Here's a better quality version of the time lapse video. I think I'll use a shorter interval for the next one. . . . . #bugsofinstagram#butterfly#monarchbutterfly#bugsarecool#science#nature#timelapsevideo

I've always wanted to see this process in person! It's a lot more gross in real time because the caterpillar just suddenly splits open 🐛did you know there is no butterfly emoji? . . . #monarchbutterfly#bugsofinstagram#timelapse#timelapsevideo#caterpillar#nature#science

This 🐝 had run out of pep and the sun was setting so I gave it some sugar water. You can see its proboscis extending out from the maxillae, which is cool. . . . #bugsofinstagram#bees#savethebees#science#nature

Finally caught one in the act of pupating! It's a little hard to see because windy Wellington, but you can see it wriggling around while it's building the cocoon round itself. . . . #monarch#bugsarecool#insect#science#monarchbutterfly#nature#wildlife

I missed this one hatching, damn. One of our caterpillars disappeared but turned up a few days later cocooned on the side of our house (which needs a wash). Wellington is hella windy so only the middle pic is in focus . . . #monarchbutterfly#biology#entomology#bugsarecool
