Hello MIUIers
Observing Nature !
It's all well and good to find infomation and photos of nature on the internet or see wonderful nature  documentaries but when you observe nature for yourself it is much more exciting, especially if you also manage to capture it through images.

Ok so, my amatuer images may not be as professional as those on the net  or on documenteries. However,  I would like to share my excitement with you from my observations.

Over the last few weeks I have noticed Wanderer (Monarch) and Lesser Wanderer butterflies around my garden. I went on a search for the milk weed plant which is where the eggs are laid by these butterflies. I found some plants and though difficult, I also found a couple of eggs. I looked for the caterpillars and found some from each type of butterfly.  In this thread I have put together some of my findings, including caterpillars in various stages of growth, butterflies  and even a chrysalis (pupa).

Mi5 settings: auto and manual. All photos have been resized. Some cropping only no other editing.
Caution: this thread contains a video, be careful of your data.

The life Cyle of a Wanderer Butterfly

1.jpg
The tiny egg approx 1-2 mm long,takes 5 to 10 dyas to hatch

2.jpg
The is the larva ofthe Lesser Wanderer Butterlfly, its about 4mm long here.

3.jpg
The caterpillar is eating its skin it has shed. It molts its skin 5 times.
intervlas of skin shedding are known as "instars"
this caterpillar is about 7-8 mm long.

4.jpg
Larva to caterpillar stage is about 5 to 10 days,
depends on the climate.

5.jpg
Lesser Wanderer Butterfly Caterpillars have 3 sets of anttenae

The video contains 30 seconds of the caterpillar munching

This is the caterpillar of the Wanderer or Monarch Butterfly.

9.jpg
This Caterpillar is quite large approx 30mm
and is on the milk weed plant, which has its seed pods.

10.jpg
This is the Chrysalis odf the Monarch butterfly.
If you look closely you can see the veins of the butterfly within.

11.jpg
It takes 10 to14 days for the butterfly to emerge from the chrysalis stage

Another great collection of images, @Kanga2, really a good work with professional skill I can say without any doubt.
Let me say that the first two shots with the butterfly are great, specially for the colours and the fact that the wings are fully opened but there's a pic outstanding better than any others here and it's the number 4, one of the best pic I've ever seen in the Xiaomi forum using a Xiaomi device... It's absolutely perfect, the bokeh, the position, the colours, the light, the subject.... Awesome!!!!!
