    The chrystalis is mature and half way to metamorphoses, see the golden strip and dot, I think it is so pretty.

    Mother Nature did it again, I went out last night and the chrystalis had started clearing. At 7 this morning it was completely clear and by 9 the butterfly had hatched. It took about 2-3 hours before it pumped it's wings with the fluid from it's body and was ready to fly.
    Enjoy the pictures.
    Merry Christmas. Cin
