Monarch Butterfly Update

Last night, Mr. Monarch looked like this.

And this morning, he looked like this.

In this picture, you can just make out the orange and black of a wing on the left side of the pupa.

I told Harland we better boil some water and call the doctor.

A butterfly will be born sometime today.

Will keep you posted.
