Q: double Exposure portrait

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

The caterpillar spins a very sticky silk, forms it's body into a "J", and chemically from the inside out becomes a chrysalis. This will turn black, except for the golden colored ring of dots. This means the Monarch will soon emerge, unfold it's wet wings and dry them, all within the space of about 12 hours. Because my wife and I both work during the day, we probably will not be able to photograph it when it's turned black. We came home tonight to Monarch number three flying around the terrarium. I will post photos of it later.
