Peacock Butterfly Emerging Video!

Finally the video is uploaded...




I have put over 4 hours worth of video, from the first signs of change to a butterfly with straight wings, into a 3min 33sec video. The first part with the stills taken at 10 min intervals you can see that the butterfly seems to be "unsticking" itself from the cocoon in stages. This takes about 2 hours and then there appears to be period of rest. The second part of the video is where the gorgeous creature breaks out by splitting the chrysalis and pulling itself out, this section I have sped up by 2x. The last part of the process is where the body changes shape (can't be seen in this video) and the wings straighten, this I have shown at 5x normal speed.

I hope you enjoy!!
