    Hi Sharon,

    Well spotted and documented.
    Didn’t know that this caterpillar was molting when you first pointed it to me.
    Only know that when you mentioned how come one caterpillar becomes two :) .

    Always found something more interesting only at the end and on the way back :doh_alamak: .

    BTW, last December I’ve posting a similar molting shot of a caterpillar.
    You can also find a little more info. about Molting and Instars in this post viewtopic.php?f=10&t=469

    Cheers..

    I agree with you and my camera does not have the special feature either. :cry:

    Initially I did not know it was actually moulting and so it did not occur to me I should time the the entire process but I believe it lasted about 2 – 3 minutes if I am not wrong. Perhaps some other photographers who have experienced this miraculous transformation can verify. It was very fun to watch though.

    Very interesting series of photos, thanks for sharing.

    Agreed a video would be most intriguing. Time to upgrade your camera, perhaps? :D

    Cheers,

    Hi Sharon,

    You are very fortunate to observe this moulting process. And the opportunity to capture it in pixels. Thanks for sharing.
