Since more than 20 years I try to catch the moment when the butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Its a time consuming-proces and most of the attemps fail.
This year I waited hours and hours in front of chrysalises of the Orange-tip. I had more than 30 chrysalises but I could only 'catch' two females. I found an egg of the Admiral and raised the caterpillar/chrysalis but the butterfly was born before I noticed any colour changes at all. My perfect hanging chrysalis of the Brimstone between Buckthorn emerged yesterday in the minute I was busy writing an email while I was waiting.....and last but not least.....the caterpillar of the Small White decided to use a bottle to hang on.....not the place I had in mind! But at least I catched the moment.....
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
