Mystery Chrysalis

I spied this chrysalis in a willow sprout at the edge of the road, right in the path of the mowers.   I snagged it and brought it to the house so we can watch it.   I have no idea what kind of butterfly will emerge.


Great camo, isn't it?   Looks just like bird poop from more than a yard away.




I'm excited to see what will come out.

  1. Cool! I found some black swallowtail cocoons a few years back and put them in one of my package bee boxes. Had no idea what they were at the time but it was fun to check on them one day and see butterflies in the box. Then we took the lid off and they slowly crawled out and flew away =)

    1. hahahaha! I wouldn't be surprised! It started changing color this weekend, which means an imminent emergence. Maybe today?
