Little Help?

By RachelMB
I wanted to get a series of shots of a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, but I had to chose the one that couldn't get out very well, didn't I? Typical. Wink

I thought this shot of the two butterflies was quite interesting.

Again, taken at the Buckfast Butterfly Farm.

A lovely shot, I like how we can see one very nearly ready, one on its way out and one out and drying! Good shot.

This makes a lovely photo as you can see the butterfly that has already emerged, the one starting to come out and the wing pattern in the chrysalis between them. A very interesting picture, well done.
