Neat little project. How did you know when it was going to emerge?

Follow the link to the complete sequence, and you will see that the chrysalis turns black before emergence - after that it is just a matter of watching and waiting, which is easier said than done. If you see it black in the evening, it will come out the next morning, anytime between dawn and noon, probably depending on the temperature. There were five in this group that we were watching, and we missed the first four - once it starts, it happens fast. I was lucky to get the last one.
