I took a couple of pictures today of an event that I’ve never been able to photograph before. Butterfly Caterpillar’s shedding their skin.
This first one is a Gulf Fritillary. These are scary looking Caterpillars. Notice at the bottom left of the Caterpillar is the skin that it recently shed.
This second picture of a Monarch Caterpillar who was still in the process of shedding its skin. The skin that it had shed is in the top right of the picture.
