Waiting for a new life

Since my childhood the process of butterfly metamorphosis has always fascinated me. It is absolutely amazing how an egg turns into a caterpillar which then hibernates in the form of a pupa and then turns into a colorful butterfly. It is interesting how, as a caterpillar this faces so many challenges from the predators and suddenly after becoming a butterfly its a lot easy to escape from them because it can fly. I wonder, if after becoming a butterfly these realize what they have been through to become a butterfly…

I took this macro shot in the garden. f/4.5; 1/50S; ISO 320 (Click on the image to expand and see the details in the picture)

The butterfly inside this pupa is waiting to see the world again… 🙂
