Turkey Tracks: September 9, 2019
Monarch Chrysalis Update
For the past few days, the green chrysalis darkened to black from green, and the orange wings began to show really clearly.
Sunday was cool and damp, off and on. Would the butterfly emerge?
Here she/he is. You can see the now-clear chrysalis behind him/her, still stuck to the amaryllis plant. She/he hung out all day, just moving slowly and gathering strength. She/he is gone his morning.
What an amazing, stunning process!

Monarchs are amazing. Next year on the migration the offspring return to where the hatching took place.
It’s magic to see isn’t it.
