This time-lapse video was made over a period of 2 weeks, using my Canon Powershot S3 IS and GBTimelapse software. The eggs hatched within 24 hours of the chicken being left out, which is when the shooting began. After 4 days I moved the larvae (maggots)
to the dry container where they began to pupate in about 2 days. The first flies emerged about 5 days after that and continued for several more days.
Until the adult flies emerged I was shooting each picture at a rate of 1 pic every 3 to eight minutes. Then I had to speed it up to every 5 seconds because they came out so fast. The movie was then played back at 30 fps. I used Sony Acid Music Studio to make the accompanying music.
