Beast to beauty!

Common Mormon butterflies are commonly found in Asia.

The development from egg to adult, it takes 30 days.

On an average a butterfly lives between 15 days to 30 days.

Butterflies don’t sleep instead they rest with eyes open.


Caterpillars are said to be ugly.

I don’t know who decides ugliness?

Beauty in the eyes of the beholder!

Do you know the truth?

“The uglier the caterpillar the lovelier the butterfly”
 Matshona Dhliwayo

“God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds using time and pressure. He’s working on you, too” Rick Warren


In the image below you can notice the artefacts and blurriness of the butterfly in the front portion of its wings.

Its motion blur due to the constant fluttering of the wings of the insect, making it difficult for me to focus while shooting (despite AI servo mode and fast burst shots).

This particular butterfly 🦋, I felt, a crazy one because I could never see this guy sitting quietly on the flower and I felt it was out beating the Hummingbirds. (In reality, butterfly wings flutter 20 times in a second, while Hummingbirds flutter their wings at a remarkable 80 to 200 times per second! and honey bees between 180 and 280)

Food for thoughtDoes butterfly flap or flutter its wings??

“Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness and still become something beautiful” Unknown

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
