I was up at 6:45 and enjoying my coffee in the screen room. The full moon had the landscape lit up …I could see better than with a flashlight. I was waiting for the birds to get up. The half hour before daylight they are the most vocal. I had already tossed corn and a couple of carrots for the bunnies. The squirrels show up long after sun up.
I was expecting 4 Butterflies to emerge today, but not until after 11:00.
At 7:00 I glanced at the Butterfly House and saw 2 butterflies out of the Chrysalis. By 9:00 there were 5.
The video of it’s emerging was too blurry to post……
You can see the difference in color….the Monarch is actually much brighter…the flash washes out it’s color
It was fun watching them exercise….
This isn’t the last of them…I have 17 more….and another 6 caterpillars. 1 is in the “J” and should pupate tomorrow….
