Or so I somewhat cheesily neologised the other day. We have 15 of the things now, which is getting towards a village, if not a city.

monarch chrysalis (3)

I’ll add any more nice shots to the end of my old chrysalis set, and any butterfly ones to the followup set.

Obviously plenty survived the attacks of the parasitic brown shield bugs, and the not so gentle attentions of R₂, to go into chrysalis. We’ll see how many butterflies we get, but the weather will have to warm up again if they’re to have much chance.
