Chrysalis

This is the chrysalis stage of a Monarch Butterfly about 5 days after the caterpillar changed form. There will probably be another 5 or 6 days before the butterfly appears. It is magic!

Wonderful!
I sometimes see a Monarch Butterfly here late in the season. I think it is when they begin their migration south before winter.
Have a great weekend!

It is magic. It really is one of nature's most unusual phenomenons.

I can't say that I've seen one of these out in nature. Great shot, very interesting.

Their instincts are so amazing, how they navigate when they've never been there before!

Aren't they miraculous?! We have 5 in chrysalis outside. The first emerged 10 days out, but the next, might take longer as it is sooler. 10 - 14 days is the average. It's so much fun!
