It is well established that degerating quadratic rational maps (maps diverging to infinity in moduli space) have normalizations which converges to Möbius transformations. It is less known, but a fact that the same sequences may have other normalizations under which some particular iterate converges (non-uniformly) to a parabolic quadratic rational map with a fixed point of multiplier 1. In this talk I show that the very same sequences may have other normalizations of another higher iterate, converging to a quadratic polynomial. This augments the dynamical compactification of moduli space with a countable bunch of spheres.
