We woke up to this sight. The chrysalis turned dark and you can see the butterfly inside. This is how you know it's about to emerge.
And it's out! It happens so fast, it's hard to catch it.
The best part about raising monarchs is when they come out, they are unable to fly for about 3-4 hours. It's the perfect time to hold them!
And it never gets old! For the kids, or for me!
