We woke up this morning to find that the butterfly had emerged. I put him--and it is a him, as was my first one (black spots on wings)--outside, and as soon as the sun hit him, flap flap flap flap--and away! From start to finish, about 3 hours. Clearly my first little friend had a few issues (but we prevailed in the end).
One more chubby caterpillar left...I think it is about to go into the chrysalis phase soon. I hope so, because it has eaten the milkweed down to almost a bare nubbin.
And BTW: yay!
