Caption

Swallowtail chrysalis. Macrophotograph of a chrysalis of the swallowtail butterfly (Papilio machaon). A chrysalis is formed when a caterpillar is ready to undergo metamorphosis into an adult butterfly. The caterpillar's organs degenerate completely and a new body develops. The swallowtail chrysalis lacks a hard cocoon and is often found attached upright to a plant by a girdle of silk. Swallowtails are large, brightly coloured butterflies with distinct tail-like projections on each hind wing.
