Phlutters – The Final Three

The final three chrysalis opened today. Each butterfly emerged while I wasn’t looking.

I think I just missed this one crawling out of his tight confines into the light; his wings still had a slight curve.

They have all flown out into the yard and are now seeking nectar. My crusade to add to the butterfly population isn’t over. I have a large pot of dill on my back porch and there are eleven caterpillars on its tender fronds eating and growing rapidly. What fun!

  1. I totally messed up yesterday. I spotted a monarch caterpillar on a milkweed plant. I should have took part of the plant and the caterpillar and put them in a safe place. An hour later he was gone and I suspect a bird or something was the culprit.

      Maybe, if he was large enough, and full enough of the milkweed he left to make a chrysalis. Monarch’s have an amazing looking chrysalis. My sister once spotted one on a plant in her garden and it was fascinating.

          It is…once you get hooked it’s hard to stop looking for them. I’m wondering how the butterflies made out in the torrential rain we had last night. I am sure whatever instinct God has give them to stop eating and create the chrysalis, is also in place to know where to shelter in rain.

      Hi Selina, I will be adding an update to the butterfly saga on my new garden blog. I’ll try to post a link on this blog when I do so. Thanks so much.
