A quick trip down south this week was quite rewarding for my eyes! I saw more Ruddy Daggerwing butterflies than I’ve ever seen. I could see up to a dozen at one time. As they flew around and about, I took quite a few photos. I haven’t edited many yet but had to edit one to share (above).
They are wonderful caterpillars! Their color is bright and captivating.
The chrysalises are delightful. Who would have thought that THIS is a butterfly chrysalis?
This is the same chrysalis the day it emerged.
Now I’m ready to head south again …
