A Pipevine Swallowtail (Battus philenor hirsuta) caterpillar performs its final molt as it pupates into a chrysalis in time lapse. Actual time was about 90 minutes.

Note the "Suspension Loop" (a white silk thread around the caterpillar's upper body) which is made by the caterpillar itself, prior molting. You can see the loop-spinning process close-up timelapse here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN42dX...
