The first of the Tailed Emperor butterflies has emerged in our garden in Canberra.

It took 19 days to metamorphose in the chrysalis and only about an hour to clamber out and stretch its wings open. But, I missed the exact moment as I had to re-charge my camera. There are still two more chrysalides on the tree so I hope to catch one of them merging on time-lapse. ... ailed.html
