BUTTERFLY EMERGING FROM CHRYSALIS CLOSE UP

There are 2 videos of this.  In this video you'll see a black swallowtail butterfly come out of its chrysalis in regular speed, then the video is sped up as its wings start to expand.  After a butterfly has emerged from its chrysalis it needs to hang upside down to let fluid into its wings.  In regular speed this is harder to see because it takes so long.  This shows you what's really happening.  The other video is more sped up.

To view these movies you'll need QuickTime 7.  If you don't have it already, you can download it here -- Free!
