Thanks for sharing! Beautiful photos!

We got to watch a Monarch Butterfly go from Caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly a few summers ago. It is amazing, but I only have two photos taken with a point and shoot.

Those are great. The first one is a bit overexposed (1/2 to 1 stop), but they all have great color.

I love the story this tells. It prompted me to go on youtube and find some time-lapse videos of the same thing. Very neat.
