Scenes from our front porch

This little beauty had been inside a chrysalis on the front porch. We had been watching it for at least a week now. On Saturday night the chrysalis became see-through; on Sunday the Monarch butterfly finally came out. We got several pictures before its wings dried enough for it to fly away. The chrysalis picture is one that I took; the emerged butterfly photo is courtesy of my daughter, who is quite the budding photographer.

Wow! How exciting!

I've left comments to your past 2 posts.

Thanks for stimulating so much thinking, reading, meditating.

Certainly the monarch butterfly must have done the same for you!
