This is the same butterfly in the above photos inside its chrysalis earlier this morning.

This was the chrysalis on yesterday morning, before any activity started to occur.

Thanks a lot Meiko! I'll add one more here that I forgot to post... it's amazing how these can have very reflective surfaces...mirrors.

Thanks woodmeister!! It really was cool to see nature's wonder unfold. This was my first time to see these incredible changes in the state of the chrysalis. I didn't even know what to expect until I looked on the internet for information about how long we have to wait roughly for things to happen. School kids sometimes have projects to grow butterflies, but we never got to do that at school. It's unbelievable how a caterpillar turns itself into a butterfly. It was bizarre how the butterfly, after its wings have dried out, can just climb to some suitable take-off position, then flap its wings and flies off - without having had any lessons or even practice! That was weird.
