Come out and play


I got to take home a Monarch chrysalis from last week's training.  After being handled by everyone in the workshop and traveling all over town it was not expected to hatch. Two days later the chrysalis had turned dark and started to split.


When the Monarch came out it look really odd.  All of it's boy fluid is in it's abdomen and it needs to "pump" it out to it's wings.  It's uses gravity to help.


After about an hour or so, it's wings had fully extended.


The next morning we put it outside in the garden.
