Emergence - April 9, 2008

Just a few days after I filmed the emergence of the Metamorphosis film, I noticed another cocoon under my outdoor table.  It was ready to emerge.  I got the camera in a little closer and what follows is the emergence from the chrysalis of another monarch.  

Unfortunately, this one couldn’t hold on.  He fell from the chrysalis and his wings got stuck to the patio  deck.  I picked him up and placed him on a hanging basket.  I came back around an hour later and he was gone, so I assume the best for the butterfly.
