Ever since my childhood I have been fascinated with nature. To me it is a real cabinet of curiosity and this fascination will never fade.
Contrary to many people who dislike insects and say 'yikes!' to them, I am fascinated with they looks, number of species and at the most with their metamorphosis. I found this chrysalis today while digging in my garden. Clearly, it belongs to some butterfly, I'd said to some moth because it is rather big - like my thumb! Thanks God I did not hurt it with my hoe. I put it back to the ground and hope I haven't disturbed the transformation.
You can see large eyes and so called proboscis, this slightly coiled sucking part of the butterfly's mouth.
