Chrysalis Found

DSCN3827

I was thrilled to stumble across this chrysalis, which is the first one I’ve ever seen in my own yard.  I showed my daughter and husband and was quite impressed that I could see the butterfly’s wings through the beautiful chrysalis.  Do you see it?  The gold edging and dots are also most elegant.  The caterpillar traveled approximately 40 feet from the milkweed plant to this location (on the back of a worn metal patio chair).  It seems that butterflies migrate even as caterpillars!
