Time lapse photography is a great way to visual events that may take considerable time in reality. Jim discusses taking time lapse sequences of the life cycle of a monarch butterfly. Monarchs are amazing insects that migrate between Canada and Mexico over several generations. They begin life from an egg about the size of a pin head laid on a milkweed plant. The emerging caterpillers increase in size around 1600xs then crawl away and pupate. Ten to fourteen days later, they emerge as a beautiful monarch butterfly and the cycle repeats.
