Gulf Fritillary Chrysalises Ruined My Hot Tub



These dang Gulf Fritillary Chrysalises just ruined any plans I had for the hot tub.

I wrote last week about how we had all these Gulf Fritillary Caterpillars on our Passion Vine.  Yea, well now these Caterpillars have moved on to the Chrysalis stage and decided that the best place to attach themselves is around my hot tub.

I do have to give them a little credit.  If I didn’t know what a Gulf Fritillary Chrysalis looks like, I would think it was just a dead leaf or something.  I took these photos on Sunday.  Today (Monday) I counted 4 more Chrysalises.  Some of them are just barely above the water in the pool.
