God's Glorious Creation

Last night, Rosemary Stripey (the caterpillar) became an official chrysalis!! She is much more beautiful than I thought she would be. She is green, which I think is a much more rare color. Usually they are brown. It is amazing to look at the pictures from yesterday's post and know that she didn't move, but turned into this. It is even more amazing to know that she will eventually turn into a beautiful black Swallowtail butterfly. Only God can do something like that. She didn't have "ears" as a caterpillar, but not she has these ear-like points on top of her.

You can look closely at her and still see her old skin is the chrysalis in places. You can still see the strings that are holding her to the box. Truly amazing

Can you see her old skin in this picture? Look at the bottom of her.

Kim,

Our "Herbie Lace" I believe is about to go into chrysalis form! She has found her spot up on a stem and is in a slightly hooked position. We're very excited! I have a nature blog post upcoming, so will have pics then.

Congratulations on Rosemary Stripey! Isn't it fun?
