Sub-Par Photos, But Here They Are

I tried taking pictures of the chrysalids today but I didn’t do the best job. It’s really sunny out but not in the front of the house where I was taking pics and fighting against the wind because I was so scared the wind would catch the top of the tank and it would fall and the chrysalids would come detached from the top of the lid so I got paranoid and came inside where the light wasn’t much better.

The one on the left (which is actually the middle one) was the first to change and you can see that he’s progressing faster than the other two. In  a few days, the chrysalis will turn transparent (it’ll look black) and a couple of days after that, the butterfly will emerge.

He’s in there. Rearranging his guts.

I had moved them to the living room windowsill for the time being because I’d been splatter painting, but I’m done now and ready to watch them every waking moment. Pics as they develop!

    Can’t wait to see the pictures of when they hatch!

      The good news is that, in my experience, they don’t hatch in the dark so I should be able to get “action shots” of at least one of them hatching!
