Most of us would not be here if not for some technological intervention, or medical intervention. Life has been enhanced and sometimes distorted by “science”.
Still the magic of life uninfluenced by the hand of man continues to be a source of wonder – even something commonly discussed in childrens’ textbooks, the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Here you can see the various stages of the common tiger butterfly, the last stage happens only if the caterpillar feeds greedily on your most cherished plants. The pictures were not taken in sequence, so the butterfly comes out of a different pupa and not the one shown 😉
