Getting this video has taken hours and days. I tried waiting for about 3 1/2 hours last night for this Monarch Caterpillar to form a Chrysalis, and of course it didn’t happen.
Then I got up early this morning, and sat in this stool for another 3 hours waiting for this to occur and I finally got it!
Once again I continue to be amazed by these creatures. This Caterpillar struggled for hours to loosen its skin. At one point I thought the poor thing might just run out of energy.
I used a little creativity by adding some music and transitional text. You’ll also notice that there are several other Monarch Chrysalises in the video. It’s supposed to be a little chilly this week, so for those that eclose this week, they may be staying indoors for a few days.
So without further adieu, here’s the video. The video runs about 3 1/2 minutes.
