    This little girl came out of her chrysalis this morning. I managed to get a handful of photos before her wings finished drying and she flew off. We started with over a dozen caterpillars on the butterfly weed. 8 or so lasted long enough to grow to full size. 2 survived long enough to form chrysalises. The first monarch to emerge was promptly eaten by a squirrel. This is the only one to make it all the way; she's the lone survivor.

    My daughter named one of the caterpillars "Tiny" (because it was the smallest one). She's convinced that this butterfly is Tiny. Works for me.

    Contrast, shadows & highlights tweek, then imagenomic skin treatment on a 50% opacity layer and a bit of dodge & burn on the eyes :).

    Quick processing.

    Does the IAF still fly MiG 29s? I always thought they looked cooler than the SU-27 family, despite being the less capable aircraft.

    Yarp. The IAF flies MiG-29Bs (although the fleet is being upgraded to MiG-29SMT standards, designated MiG-29UPG) and the Navy flies MiG-29K/KUBs, which are arguably better than the Su-27 family... or so a Flanker pilot who's flown both told me.
