thks guys for overwhelming response , i will try to show u different spec. of Lifecycle.
how many days did the whole process take..
Egg to Catty - 7-10 days.
Catty - Pupa - 20 days.
Pupa - Butterfly - 6 days.
I started working from 5 days from Catty formation. Whole this process was carefully executed still i missed 2 major event all becoz my inexperience.
What I missed???
Part - 1
Catty start forming pupa from 11pm and by 2am she made pupa position (Ulta U shaped position). Till 10am she was same , i was planning to document formation pupa ( covering of Butterfly Pic.5) by Time lapse photography , was thinking this process will take place in 24 hrs. But this was happened within 10 -45mins at 12.00pm. And i was at clinic at that time.
Part - 2
After missing part 1, i decided not miss butterfly coming out process. So on last day i kept 30 mins time lapse means every 30mins there will be one click and this process i started from 23.00hrs ( i was confident about pupation will start soon) ............and by 11.30pm my wife called BUTTERFLY OUT. I had checked cam and so Pic. 7 taken at 11.00 and 11.30 pic. was butterfly out ( i was shocked to hear this news) .....means again this process i had missed. Its difficult to monitor process unless until u should be present at this situation.Gear used -
Canon 7D , Canon 100 L , Canon 580ex , Ring Flash Adapter Time lapsed -
Tripod , Ball head , Wired Remote. ( it took 20mins to place tripod+cam on exact position)
Manual mode , 1/200 , F/13 - Focusing - Manual ..... through Live view at 5X magnification.
Pic. 1-6 ------ Handheld ......Rest On tripod.
