Butterfly Surprise

Yesterday just after sun-up Lily and I noticed this butterfly emerging from its chrysalis in the grass just outside the veg garden.  

Great way to start the morning.


  1. Nice!!! Last year I discovered two Black Swallowtail catterpillars on my wife's parsley plants. I ended up putting them in the cages that my bee packages came in along with some sticks and the parsley they were eating. Sure enough, by the next day they had spun cocoons and when I checked them a few days later they had hatched. I took the lid off and after a few minutes they flew away. It was a great experience!

  2. What an early morning find! Love the colors! Looks to me like a dye project.
