Chrysalis June 16, 2016

Posted by stinawp in Uncategorized.

One of my caterpillar host plants had a very striking chrysalis hanging on it for about a week and a half. On June 6, it looked like this:

and from the side, it looked an awful lot like a slightly wilted leaf

By the 14th, the colors had changed and it was pretty obvious that it was some sort of swallowtail butterfly:

On the 15th, it was gone. I assume it had emerged and was flying around.
