Rate this:
The transformation of a plain, bristly caterpillar into an exquisitely colored butterfly is nothing short of a miracle, yet it happens every summer. Although many insects undergo similar processes to complete their development, none emerge from their periods of rest so dramatically changed as the butterfly. Here the life cycle of the peacock butterfly is examined at every stage of its remarkable development. Microscopic views of the butterfly's wings show the individual scales that form the colorful patterns characteristic of the peacock butterfly.
