Jewel of the Garden by devilicious Jewel of the Garden by devilicious
last night I submitted [link] in attempts to share this Chrysalis found in the backyard. i hope to check it every day and i hope i catch the emerging Butterfly who has to let wings dry and then fly :floating:

yesterday the yard crew showed up and blew it away. :( :cries:

so today we went in search of another in the yard -and found this guy! :bounce: so the project will continue

anyway - stay tuned and take a second to realize how gorgeous this casing is - like a piece of jewelry - metallic silk shining in the sun - as beautiful as the caterpillar and/or butterfly if you ask me :)

mother nature is the greatest artist of us all ;)

:heart: :devilish:

VERY cool. Any idea what species is in there? I've never seen one like this.

I'm guessing a Variegated Fritillary [link]
