PONTIANAK, INDONESIA: Fifth stage of a lime butterfly emerging from its chrysalis in Pontianak, Indonesia.
Photographer Catur G. Prakasa, who lives in Pontianak in the West Kalimantan province of Indonesia, took a series of photographs of the step-by-step process at his home. After waiting patiently, the photographer captured the moment the lime butterfly emerged from its cocoon - from when its wings could just be seen peeping out of the chrysalis to when it finally became visible in all its glory.
