Butterfly, A Beautiful Life

Watch the butterfly happen!  Two minutes of transformation.

NationalGeographic, “Great Migrations: Butterfly: A Life”

The best part is near the end of the clip.  I hope it plays for you.

    A beautiful video. It’s almost time to start thinking about what you might plant in your garden. I encourage you to plant a larval food plant so that you may get to enjoy the awesome transformation of a caterpillar.

    • Very cool! I’m a little late getting your messages, but I’m glad you liked the video. I found it after watching the one you had posted on your LFD’s blog about the history of our relationship with dogs. So thanks for sending me to the National Geographic site!

    • I’m glad you got to see it.

      I once helped someone edit videos on butterflies and hummingbirds and this reminded me of his work. He was very talented. He traveled the world chasing butterflies in his plane. He wrote his own music for the butterflies to dance to and his video, “Dancing with Hummingbirds” won an award at the Sundance Festival. That’s when I learned about the butterflies.

      As far as waking up feeling beautiful, I still think I might need a nap first and then get up again 🙂

  5. That was beautiful Mrs Dogkisses. I also watched the one afterwards with a slideshow of pictures of different buttflies. (or Flutter-bys as My kids used to call them when they were little) It is amazing how most are so beautiful, but others just blend into their background, and some are actually creepy looking.

    Don’t you wish we could be like that little catapiller? Wrap outselves up, rest for awhile, then emerge breathtaking and well?

    Maybe we should all take a lesson from that butterfly. You might wake up in the morning feeling ugly, but take a nap and you just might wake up lokking better than you have for a long time.

    • Oh, I’m laughing. “You might wake up in the morning feeling ugly, but take a nap and you just might wake up lokking better than you have for a long time.”

      I’ll just plan on taking a nap tomorrow morning, after I wake up.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. I loved it! Thanks for commenting Mo!

      hugs and dogkisses xoxo
