    Default The Butterflies are here !!

    After resting in their Chrysalis for little over a week the first 3 Black Swallowtails hatched yesterday and 3 more this morning. Here is the whole show which takes about an hour. Never realized that the Swallowtails hatch in the mornings and the Monarchs hatch anytime. 2 Monarchs hatched yesterday but I missed it. In the last picture the butterfly on the right is the male and the one with the most blue is the female.
    Enjoy, Cin
