Who needs toe shoes?

Sooo, this happened...

We have had a lot of activity in the Monarch Caterpillar department!
It's funny how they all bunch up. (The loner was taped in place.)
They also social distance, keeping the length of their body apart.

Today, the first chrysalis was clear, with butterfly markings showing through.

Then, voila!

However, this one hatched out at 4:30pm in a rainstorm that won't let up completely until morning, and with a night on tap just a tad too cool for flight.  So, we have given her private accommodations for the night.  She is safe in her habitat, but out on the screened back porch until temps warm to 60ºF around 9:00am.
