Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition

Sometimes we have guests in the garden. Here’s one that transitioned almost as we watched. Regretfully, we missed the moment he went free. He’s a Great Mormon (Papilio Memnon Agenor).

He was already a large greedy caterpillar when first spotted
Chomp! Chomp!
Time to rest, and transmogrify
Gone now, only an empty shell left
