Well if you are sick of monarchs, this is not the place to visit! The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) emerged from its chrysalis yesterday and dried overnight. I released it onto some New England Aster and it flew off mid-morning.

See below for an animated gif of the chrysalis over two weeks.
