monarch project 2010

This morning I was treated to the opportunity to watch another butterfly emerge from it’s chrysalis.  I had the butterfly house sitting on the kitchen counter with the top off, and just kept an eye on it and had the camera ready.  As I was standing there I noticed the butterfly starting to come out, so I started taking pictures.  I took several pics of it coming out, then I took one picture every minute until the wings were full size.  The whole process took from 11:54 to 12:09.  I also took a few pics of it before I released it.

This is the chrysalis about 1/2 hour before the butterfly came out.
