Black Swallowtail Cat...

Black Swallowtail Cat

So cute---eating like she was hungry---and she has now made herself a chrysalis-----in the version---which we are watching very carefully--protecting----
This is what I have been pre-occupied with since the end of July---will be putting the sequence into a web page--

How good to find this nature event, Jenn, and very nicely captured: hope you manage to see the butterfly that will eventually emerge.
