I Know How A Butterfly Is Born, But Never Have I Seen It Like THIS.

Most of us remember the stages of butterfly metamorphosis from elementary school: The caterpillar gets big and fat, then cocoons up for awhile before reemerging as a beautiful, delicate butterfly. What goes on inside the cocoon is science at its absolute best. Now, we can see it up close and personal.

"Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly" is a time-lapsed video that covers the entire transformation, from caterpillar to monarch butterfly. Seeing it like this will take your breath away. It will also remind you how incredibly complexed and nuanced nature can be. See the amazing video below.

Next, more awe-inspiring before and after butterfly transformations.
