There may be no greater transformation than a moth to a butterfly. A slithery little caterpillar crawls about for a bit before wrapping itself tightly into a cocoon and the next thing you know, a beautiful winged butterfly emerges. Once wrapped up tightly, caterpillars literally melt down into a liquid, during which time they only retain the starting points for their most important features, including the eyes and wings. Generally, you see a caterpillar, or you see a butterfly, and sometimes you are lucky enough to see a cocoon, but unless you have a pet moth or butterfly you don’t see before and after photos of the same creature wearing different skin.
