Watching a luna moth expand it’s wings after it ecloses.
One thing that never seems to quit fascinating me is watching a newly hatched (eclose) butterfly or moth expand it’s wings. Comparing the size of the butterfly/ moth to the pupa it came out of is impressive. Watching the wings go from shriveled looking little things to large wings capable of flight is a marvel. The luna moth is even more intriguing to me because it’s tails are tucked in and don’t flop out until further in the wing development as you can see in this series of photos that I took.
