David had the chance this weekend to bring a Monarch pupae home from school. It was fascinating to watch it change for the last few days. This Morning after church the kids rushed into the living room to see that it had finally emerged! :smile: All shots were taken with a D50 and Nikkor 24-120VR Here it is a few minutes after emerging. After a few minute it unfurled its wings. After a couple of hours the kids took it outside to release it. Eventually it got strong enough to fly away :smile: It was amazing to watch the whole process and I am glad we all got to experience the miracle. :smile: Thanks for looking.
