The balcony observer's report- Chaff the butterfly in early winter (2) 初冬逗蝶趣

其實這是我第二次觀察無尾鳳蝶 Lemon Butterfly (Papilio demoleus) 在陽台育成,事情發生在去年12月,離現在已一年。當初沒想到入冬了,還會有蝴蝶媽媽來下蛋,過程中還去戲弄他(是小男生),直到伸出臭角。或許是天氣冷,又來寒流,他羽化破蛹後竟然一直待在我陽台不飛,一開始還怕他沒長好,直到44小時後才飛離開。又怕他被天敵發現,把他移到後陽台,也比較沒風,還試著餵他果糖。一樣是頭也不回的翩翩而去,別難過,小孩長大總是要離家單飛...

等了14天,要破蛹前,蛹會變透明。這是出蛹瞬間,當然又是我一夜沒闔眼才拍到的。

剛出蛹,可以看出翅膀還捲捲皺皺的。

下翅表面肛角紅色斑蚊上緣的藍黑色斑不明顯,沒錯,是小男生呦。

這張沒打閃光燈,雖然細節變模糊了,但葉子看起來較嫩綠。

The whole series is great! But #10 went straight to my favourites, because the child observes the butterfly.
