Very few events in nature are more stunning and incredible than the process of metamorphosis. This is the change that caterpillars go through on their way to becoming beautiful butterflies and moths. The change itself is astonishing enough, but the process of metamorphosis is dark, mysterious, and downright creepy.

Once encased in their cocoons, the caterpillars are reduced to liquid with only a few fundamental buds remaining to function as the growth plates for wings and eyes. From this soup of different proteins, butterflies and moths emerge. Some even manage to retain learned behaviors from their stint as a caterpillar. Don't fool with Mother Nature!
