52 Project week 42- caterpillar to butterfly

Life is so amazing. I know I was amazed at the creation of my children and their birth and even how they grow and develop each day. The youngest received a butterfly environment for her 7th birthday and to be honest with you I thought it was going to be a BIG fail in our house. WOW was I wrong. We got 5 caterpillars in the mail in a steamy cup full of this cornmeal looking goop. In about 5 days this spiny and CHUBBY caterpillars climbed up to the roof of the cup and began to form a shell. It was absolutely amazing to see this happening right on the kitchen counter. About seven days later they were hard and iridescent so we transferred the paper they had adhered to in to the "environment". They were pinned to the wall literally with a pin. Seven more days and we had butterflies hatching!!! They dried their wings and sucked sugar water off of napkin balls we made for them. Then they were all named and released to Earth at two days old. We released about 2 a day until all 5 were on their path to a new life. So eye opening to be a part of such a transition.

Can you believe it, I am on week 41 already! I can hardly wait for my week 52 post. WOW! I have so much to share, but for know, I hope you enjoy the smoke. This series of images was created in studio. I had a back/side light and a white foam core reflecting back on to the smoke. It was an incense stick to keep the stream constant.
