Watch dozens of blue morpho butterflies emerge from their chrysalises

At the Natural History Museum in London, caterpillars turn into blue morpho butterflies and emerge from their chrysalises in hyperspeed.

Most of us aren’t lucky enough to catch that amazing moment in a caterpillar’s transformation to a butterfly, when it emerges from its chrysalis and gingerly stretches its newly-formed wings for the very first time.

But at the Natural History Museum in London, the Sensational Butterflies exhibit offers access to the chrysalis hatchery, where blue morpho butterflies emerge to their enchanted audiences. If you’re not able to go and see the exhibit in person, this video provides a vicarious experience on your computer, set in hyperspeed.
