Mariposa

Each year there is one thing that makes me happy.   This year it is butterflies.

This is the second swallowtail that I have seen emerge from its cocoon.  There have been several swallowtail caterpillars, but I have only found two cocoons.

  1. Beautiful!! And point out where the cocoon is on the plant … I would have missed it!

  2. I will post the pic again with an ugly arrow and put it below the fold.
