This is a VERY rough timelapse of the lifecycle of a giant owl butterfly as captured in a human hand. The video begins with a tiny egg, proceeds to several stages of caterpillar growth before a chrysalis, and, finally, a butterfly. Man, I can’t wait for my own metamorphosis. It just sucks because no matter how tightly I bundle myself up at night or how long I sleep, I still wake up just a caterpillar. A very hungry caterpillar. Just not the sort they write best-selling children’s books about either, which extra sucks because I could really use those royalties.
