Peacock butterfly

With no birding to report on today it seems like an opportune moment to post a couple of videos. These are of the Peacock butterfly caterpillars I collected in August.

In the first video you can see the transformation from caterpillar to chrysalis and in the second the first flight of a newly emerged butterfly.
I don’t think that the video does truly credit to how fascinating it was to watch these two events which happended 12 days apart but the live sound track of various members of the family will hopefully convey some of our excitement. You will also get to experience the weird half English, half Norwegian household I live in.

Remember to select HD quality in settings.
