Talk about Changes

The Cecropia caterpillar goes through five stages each lasting approximately a week.

As they mature, their color changes from black to brown to green.

This photo shows a late stage caterpillar.

Now, it’s time for the big change into a moth.

Talk about changes!

Monarch Caterpillar

High on my list of fun things to photograph are butterflies.

Sometimes, I go out looking for them before they arrive.

Instead, I find caterpillars.

I wonder if they have a clue about what their future holds.

It is a remarkable transformation process.
