The Sulphur Butterfly Emerged Already!

If you read the blog over at Beautiful Wildlife Garden, you'll know in a recent article of mine I wrote about a caterpillar changing color based on the plant it was eating.

The cloudless sulphur caterpillar quickly turned into a beautiful butterfly. Here's a short, "From Caterpillar to Freedom", video slideshow:



It took considerably less time than I anticipated. Only 6 days from chrysalis to emerge. SPEEDY!

I Love this! For all the caterpillars I've had this year, I cannot find one chrysalis..Do they make video cams for caterpillars?

Thanks Cindy! I had fun making it. I'm going to try to make a few "lessons from nature" slideshows under 5 minutes each involving interactions with critters and native plants

Love these guys! I am seeing a lot of them around this year. A good year for Sulphurs!
