A chrysalis

Strange, almost all of the monarch caterpillars were gone this morning. Of the original nine, we could only find two. They had become very drab in color and one was starting to adhere itself to the leaf of a hibiscus planted near the milk week. I didn't have time to snap a photo and figured I would take a picture this afternoon. Upon my return this afternoon I found the caterpillar I wanted to photograph this morning. Only now he is a full-fledged chrysalis.

Good luck little fella. I hope you make it!

  1. The butterfly eventually emerged leaving behind only its chrysalis. Unfortunately, we did not see it happen and didn't get the opportunity to snap any pictures.
