There's a thread on the main TJP site: Change Brings Life where we've been working on translating from Chinese to Japanese and English.

The Essay



大自然は 謎に満ち満ちていますが、その謎に迫るには鋭い観察眼が必要とされます。

Nature is full of hidden mysteries, but a good pair of eyes are needed to discover them.


少し不格好な毛虫(イモムシ)を美しいチョウへと変化させることのできる創造者(天)の力に、私たちは驚嘆せずにはいられません。 果たして私たちは、チョウが変化の過程で直面する脅威について、じっくりと考えたことがあるでしょうか??

A change from a slightly ugly caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly makes people marvel at the power of creator. Have we ever thought of the threats that a butterfly has to face during its life cycle?


美麗的蛻變 - 蝴蝶成長的過程

美しい変形 - チョウの成長過程

A beautiful transformation - The Life Cycle of a Butterfly



The life cycle of a butterfly undergoes 4 stages : Egg; Larva (caterpillar); Pupa; Butterfly



幼虫は葉っぱを大量に食べることで栄養を吸収します。幼虫は自らの成長に合わせて何度か脱皮を重ね、やがてサナギへと姿を変えていきます。 この過程は、だいたい1~2ヶ月を要します。

The caterpillar gains nourishment by eating a large quantity of green plants matter. During its growth, it would shed its skin several times. Then it weaves a chrysalis and becomes a pupa. This stage usually takes one to two months.



Butterflies begin life as eggs. It takes about two to three weeks for the egg to hatch into a larva or caterpillar.


許多變化都在蛹時期發生。翼,腿和其餘的部分都在蝶蛹裡面形成。 繭變得越來越透明。毛蟲大約在兩個星期內完成神奇的蛻變,變成一隻美麗的蝴蝶。

サナギの時期には 多くの変化が起こります。ハネやアシ, 残りの[チョウの]部位もサナギの中で形づくられます。繭はますます透明になります。幼虫は約2週間で、美しいチョウへと奇跡的な変身を遂げます。

Many changes happen during the chrysalis stage. The wings, the legs and the rest of the butterfly are formed inside the chrysalis. The pupa becomes increasingly transparent. The caterpillar completes the miraculous transformation into a beautiful butterfly in about two weeks.




After the normal period as a chrysalis has passed, the butterfly will struggle out from the chrysalis. When it has completely separated from the chrysalis, it will eject the liquid from its end of its abdomen. This liquid is the waste accumulated during its chrysalis stage.
