As expected, our third Monarch Butterfly in as many days emerged today. Unfortunately, it decided to present itself while I was out at an early lunch with friends. I was able to get these shots earlier this morning before I left and you can clearly see that the chrysalis is clear and the Monarch’s colors are shining through, clear indications that it will emerge soon. Just not when I was around.
I found the butterfly on a nearby plant when I got home and, just like the previous two, it was a very healthy looking female.
Two more to go, neither of which are going to be coming out tomorrow.
