Our Word View - Liquescent

What is Our Word View?  A collaboration between two friends who lost touch over the years but have reconnected online.  We share a love of the ocean, photography, quotes, animals and family.  Often times our photographic interpretations for the word of the week are very similar.

This week the word liquescent, meaning becoming liquid, melting was chosen for our photographic interpretation.  I hope you will go over to Our Word View and see what Liz shares this week.

Did you know that the monarch butterfly caterpillar liquifies in it's chrysalis in order for the butterfly to complete it's metamorphosis?  I think it is amazing that a creature could go through such a change and survive.  Nature is truly a gift.  

These images show the end stage of such a metamorphosis, just before the butterfly emerges.
