birth

This is a stop-action photo of the unfurling process. The cardboard tube is about to hit the ground, the cocoon is fluttering down from the top, and the curtain is about to fall to it's final hanging position. You can see the hook at the end of the alumunum pole in the foreground, this was what was used to pull the velcro tab off of the cocoon, the pull tab is still hooked, if you look carefully you can see the long strip of velcro still attached to the cocoon.
