Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

From La Selva Ecolodge, Ecuador.

This caterpillar is ready to start pupating to change into a butterfly.  This intermediary stage is called the chrysalis stage in butterflies.  At the lodge’s butterfly house we got a close-up view of many native species.

    That’s really cool! Do you get a chance to see the whole metamorphosis?

      No, we weren’t at La Selva that long, but we did get to see lots of different butterflies/caterpillars in various stages. They had a whole collection of chrysalises of various species!

        How cool! That would be a really fun pit stop on any journey. 🙂
