Chrysalis

During one of our walks home from our local Starbucks, Trinhity found this:


We are not sure how she found such a tiny treasure in the shrubs, but we were all thrilled. Daddy broke off the limb and carried Trinhity's chrysalis home to watch the monarch emerge.

We did some surfing online to try to figure out how old our chrysalis was as well as to get general information about the monarch butterfly.

Here is our new friend. Trinhity was happy to know that it was a girl butterfly.
