Butterfly Chrysalis - Today's the Day

Just before the Monarch Caterpillar to Monarch Butterfly transformation is complete, the green Chrysalis will begin to turn clear and you'll actually be able to see most of the Monarch Caterpillar folded up inside. This shot was taken just an hour or so before the butterfly emerged.

Nice photo. I do closeups when I can. I enjoy macro, but I'm not there yet. Maybe something I can grow into.

Thanks! Macro Photography is an excellent genre to get into, just because there is so much wildlife around you every day that's small. Try it! :)
