Descriptive Writing on Metamorphosis

    A small green caterpillar is crawling up towards the leaf slowly but surely, getting nearer by each step. Finally it reaches the leaf it is aiming for. Once it steps onto the leaf, it starts nibbling on the leaf bit by bit.
   In no time, the small green caterpillar will grow into a healthy well grown one. When it’s ready, it finds a spot to start the life changing process. Finding a comfortable spot, it starts to hang itself upside down. Once settled, the metamorphosis process starts.
Steadily, chrysalis starts to form from the head, making its way down, engulfing the critter. Changes, then, transpires inside the cocoon.
   As time passes, a beautiful, stunning butterfly emerges from the cocoon. It is ready to spread its elegant wings to liberty. - Audrey F

Descriptive writing about metamorphosis

The caterpillar, a brightly colored herbivore, eats the tiny green leaves. It tries to grow. It searches for food in the harsh environment. It crawls slowly from plants to plants, from stem to stem, from leaves to leaves, searching for its own sanctuary. It avoids predators around the area. When it is big enough, it hooks its tail to a sturdy plant, hanging with only the tail attached to the plant. Time flies, the hanging caterpillar soon metamorphoses into a soft green silky cocoon. To protect itself from dangers, it camouflages with its surrounding. There is a big change going on inside the small cocoon. The caterpillar transforms inside. It will be different from what it used to be, different from the old long body it used to have. After a while, the cocoon cracks open. A thing tries to make its way out from the newly hatched cocoon. The head appears then the body, and, soon, the wings. It has two colorful and powdery smooth wings. The beauty of this creature is shown in its pair of wings, and, with it, it is free again and can fly through the air.
