Papillon butterfly emerging timelapse


Timelapse Heliconius Papillon-bibou butterfly emerging from chrysalis.

Filmed in my studio in Oxford. This large butterfly chrysalis had to be kept warm and moist to avoid the butterfly emerging with deformed wings. This sequence used two chryslalis.

Filmed by Neil Bromhall


x2 Nikon D300, 55mm & 105mm lens with tungsten light. 1-5 sec intervals minute interval, humidifier and growlight to stimulate emergence.

My thanks to Stratford Butterfly House for providing healthy chrysalis.
