They’re emerging!

I went to check on the chrysalises in our backyard and witnessed a butterfly freshly emerged from her chrysalis stretching and drying her wings. I was thisclose to snapping a picture of her when she took to the skies, so unfortunately I didn’t get a shot of her. However, I did get a picture of her empty chrysalis and it is very beautiful.

Butterfly on the way

We recently¬†found a caterpillar hanging from a link in our chain-link fence that’s been engulfed by mess of passion flower vines and flowers and leaves. We’ve snapped photos of him in his development from a caterpillar to a cocoon. Hopefully we get him on his emergence as a butterfly!
