Queen 2 birthed

This afternoon the second queen butterfly,(Koninginnepage,Swallowtail,Papilio Machaon)
came out of his cocoon.

Though I was fully equipped and prepared for the birthing...
while talking with my good friend K., meanwhile keeping an eye on the cocoon, right next to me..
I saw out of a corner of my eye..suddenly..pfffft there she was!
It went all so quick..that I could not believe my eyes!
Quickly took position, while she was shaking the wings..and following in the process of getting them filled.
Again amazing astounding process going on right before my eyes...
Real time seeing it is different than seeing the picture,
capturing the awe is only done in part.
