[Young caterpillar 幼蟲]

I agree that summer is the season of butterflies. In Taiwan, however, it is also the opportunity to witness the metamorphosis of butterflies in autumn. Following this summer that my seventh to tenth Lemon butterflies (Papilio demoleus) successfully bred on my balcony (all were girls, so coincidental), my eleventh Lemon butterfly also did in autumn (she was a girl, so coincidental again). In the summer, I tried low-key lighting photography; this time, I took photos in the sun. I hope you will like them.

我承認夏天是蝴蝶的季節,但是在台灣,秋天也有機會目睹蝴蝶的蛻變哦。繼今年夏天成功育出我的第七至第十隻無尾鳳蝶(共四隻。好巧,都是女生哦),這個秋天,陽台育出我的第十一隻無尾鳳蝶(也是女生哦。更巧了)。夏天時我嘗試低調光攝影,這一次,則採用白晝光下攝影記錄。希望大家會喜歡。

Last year, when I had the fifth one, I took a very serious shot of each step of the transformation of butterfly from larva to adult, which was stated in my 94th to 101st reports (8 in total), and the 102nd report with a video. Welcome to review.

去年在養第五隻時,很認真的拍攝了毛毛蟲變蝴蝶的每一個步驟,收錄在我的第94號到第101號(共8篇)的報告裡,還有影片剪輯在第102號報告,有興趣的朋友可以參閱。

She is so small. Do you see? 她好小隻,你看到了嗎?

脫皮了,皮被她吃掉,剩面具留下。
