Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar – soon to form a chrysalis – 10:05 AM

12:51 PM

This photo is not in proper focus. But I wanted to capture that in less than three hours it went from caterpillar to chrysalis.

I thought that I was checking frequently enough to see it start and take progressive photos. It was Thanksgiving Day and in was busy. The process of shedding its skin and transforming to the chrysalis was over in about 2.5 hours.

I took this photo the following morning.

Currently there are four chrysalides at my house. I hope to find another in J state to take photos.
