It's been ages since I hatched out monarch butterflies.Â But old habits die hard, and we've been raising a monarch caterpillar on our kitchen counter for the past few weeks.
This morning the orange and black product of our labors crawled from his chrysalis, inflated his wings, and flew off to an uncertain future.

Stunning simply stunning.
So when's the coronation?
Oh my, I definitely should try it some time
Go Wanderer! Although I guess it had better go south at this time of year.
Boy or Girl?
Thanks guys! Our butterfly turned out to be a boy.
Very cool... With their migration in full swing, I expect the fruit of your labor will pass through my neck of the woods soon.
