monarch spinning cocoon video

Monarch Project, Day 8

Monarch #2 spun its chrysalis around 7 AM this morning. I caught it in time lapse (1 frame every 15 seconds) and included it above in both its original (30 fps) state and 1/4 speed slow motion.

Below are photos of the caterpillar around 9 hours prior to weaving its cocoon (after it attached itself to the top of the cage with silk), and two hours after weaving its cocoon.
