Photographer's Note

Luciano is very successful with his caterpillars, so he inspired me to show my photos. Will you find them also interesting (I have some doubts about it)?
Here you see how the owl butterfly emerges from a chrysalis (pupa). This stage can last from a few weeks, a month or even longer. The owl butterflies are species of the genus Caligo and are known for their huge eyespots, which resemble owls' eyes. They are found in the rainforests and secondary forests of Mexico, Central and South America. Owl butterflies are very large, 65–200 mm.

Do not miss the Workshops! There you will see its caterpillar (looks a bit funny) and the birth of another butterfly.
