Am I the only one that noticed the lack of butterflies? Before this pandemic I kept asking what happened to all the butterflies? Have you ever truly read the process of a butterfly. I mean you probably don't remember what you learned in your elementary science class. Exactly, How is a butterfly formed?--- I started this year off saying ,I feel like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon. I still stand by that statement. This season feels like we're all in a cocoon preparing, waiting for the GO. Let me tell you, this butterfly is getting ready to fly. I've witnessed so many people coming out there cocoon in this season. testimony on top of testimony!
I went ahead and researched the process of a butterfly and God blew my mind. God is so detailed. Let me give you the quick synopsis. I'm going somewhere with this. Hol' up Don't run off yet?
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS PROCESS SKIP DOWN A BIT.
butterflies go through 4 stages of metamorphosis. Egg, Larva, Pupa, and Adult. hold on to these four stages in your mind.
1. EGG: The butterfly start as a small egg. Butterfly eggs are usually laid on leaves
2. EGG When the egg finally hatches. what emerge is what we call a caterpiller. The
Pupa: as soon as they Larvae reach its full weight potential . They go into a Chrysalis Now, as most people know, caterpillars are short, stubby and have no wings at all. Within
the chrysalis the old body parts of the caterpillar are undergoing a remarkable transformation, called ‘metamorphosis,’ to become the beautiful parts that make up the butterfly that will emerge. Tissue, limbs and organs of a caterpillar have all been changed by the time the pupa is finished, and is now ready for the final stage of a butterfly’s life cycle.
Adult Butterfly: When the butterfly first emerges from the chrysalis, both of the wings are going to be soft and folded against its body. This is because the butterfly had to fit all its new parts inside of the pupa.
