Our gardener gave us some monarch chrysalises to show Toby and Max. (We’re off to Cleveland tomorrow.) She grows milkweed, collects the eggs and watches the process from start to finish. I just, for the first time, watched a video of a chrysalis emerging from the caterpillar body. Amazing.

In the bottom photo you can see the wing veins on the left side of the chrysalis. Apparently, the 2 gold dots at the bottom will be the monarch’s eyes.
Hopefully we’ll be present when one or more of the monarchs emerge.

:hearteyes: They look like little enamel boxes. So beautiful. What an amazing opportunity for the boys.

What fun! We have been seeing lots of monarchs lately at the Montezuma Wildlife Refuge fluttering around the habitat that was created for them. Guess it must be time for the big migration!

During the drive several of the chrysalises turned much darker, signaling impending hatching.

Of course the first two emerged whan we weren’t looking. Luckily, before we went for a short walk I set up my phone for a time lapse video.
