I see the butterfly has come out of it’s chrysalis, thus completing it’s pupa stage and entering the imago stage – i.e. – it’s a BUTTERFLY!
We found this little guy in its larval stage (i.e. it was a caterpillar) on the Asclepias, the butterfly milkweeds. So you knew it was right at home. Then Rikki jarred it up and… Pupae!
It took awhile, but finally the butterfly emerged during the day, and left the next morning (yesterday).
