The First Monarch Butterfly Emerges

This Monarch Butterfly escaped capture as a caterpillar and was clearly among the first to create a Chrysalis.  Since it attached itself to a patio chair it was quite easy to get a camera set up to record it’s birth or emergence from the chrysalis.  There are five more Monarch Caterpillars in chrysalis at different days here.  We have a few on camera that we were able to capture and place in a safe area and film.

One more escaped capture and ended up on a pillow on the front of the same patio chair.  Thank fully no one took a break and sat in the chair.
