WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme, The Chrysalis

When this challenge was first posted, I was at a loss as to what I could share. Then, I remembered the thousands of photographs I have taken of the various stages of the Monarch Butterfly’s life cycle. My favorite stage is the third stage, the pupa, or chrysalis! I have been raising monarchs for 14 years now and I still take photographs of all stages, but most frequently the chrysalis. It is the stage where the miracle of metamorphosis takes place, during which the chrysalis has many different appearances depending on how close it is to the next stage: that of the butterfly.  Enjoy my variations on a theme: The Chrysalis for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. All photographs are mine and subject to copyright. Thank you!



one out one to go.
