That's exciting, booni!  Deb will be interested.  I'm looking forward to seeing future photos as it changes.    They are beautiful when they hatch and dry their wings.   :nod2

Is it in a safe place now?

That's interesting, booni    It seems like a long time in the chrysalis stage.  I'm going to ask Deb how long the Monarchs are in that state.  I'm curious to know if the two species are similar or different in their development.    :nod2

That is a really neat find.  I hope it stays safe till it emerges in the spring.  They are such a beautiful butterfly.
