Just a few minutes

There really aren't a lot of words needed for this...mouse over the photo to see how it all happened in just a couple of minutes. (each photo is named according to the date stamp as I took the photo, but the upshot is it all took about half an hour from stoic, silent chrysalis to vibrant life.


















And while I was sitting on the wet grass rejoicing in this newest addition to the world, I looked over, and saw another chrysalis I hadn't seen before. The more we look, the more we see.



I'm very grateful that this monarch chose this morning to emerge, and while I was outside checking them too...there will be more over the next few days but I'm unlikely to see them, as I'm busy with preparations for my adventure. More on that this evening.....
