Cloudless Sulphur Chrysalis And Butterfly



This is a first for us.  We’ve had this Cloudless Sulphur Chrsyalis for a few weeks now.  On Thursday (Thanksgiving) I noticed that the Chrsyalis had turned a bright yellow, and you could see the stripes of the soon to emerge Butterfly.

What I didn’t expect is that the Butterfly would emerge in the late evening.  With most of the other Butterflies we have raised, the Butterfly emerged from the Chrysalis in the mid-morning hours.  Since it was cold outside we brought the newly emerged Butterfly inside for the night.

The next day we took the Butterfly outside so it could warm up in the morning sun.

This final shot was after the Butterfly flew a short distance away and continued to warm up in the sun.

Leecy - He would never open his wings long enough for us to get a pic of his wings open. They were very BRIGHT & pretty! Even had a pinkish-red spot on the lower sections.November 27, 2009 – 10:24 pm
