painted lady

I found this caterpillar in my flowerbed and I decided to put it in a jar and see what it would change into.

By the next day it had formed this cocoon.  About a week or so later, I discovered this…

a painted lady butterfly.  I tried to get a shot of it from the side, with it’s wings closed because the underside of the wings are as beautiful as the top side, but I couldn’t get a shot.  I do love my monarchs, but this was kind of a nice change.
