How did you discover your subject? Was it in the wild, or a captive bred specimen?

This one was captive bred, but we meet them very often in the wild. This is very common specie in our area and we've seen them emerging from pupal chambers few times.

Very cool. We have several similar species (in regards to their life cycle)in the States, but I haven't had the pleasure of seeing one emerge. Congrats :)

This is amazing!! I love the colors, textures, focus... everything! Also the unique moment of birth (to adulthood) captured here. Gorgeous shot! :)
