OK I promise this will be the last Monarch Butterfly post. I'll admit I childishly obsessed with them. A hard promise to keep too, with 3 more lovely green chrysalis' attached to my brickwork and another fat caterpillar waiting to morph into one.
But tonight this lovely creature was sitting atop my wee swan plant, the remains of her encasement evidence of her escape.
Truth be known again I cannot be certain this is 'the one', as the chrysalis below was also empty tonight.
But I am just grateful that, after watching it for so long, the tenuous little caterpillar-eaten twig did manage to stay intact and a miracle butterfly did emerge.
