The Late Bloomer

Late in the fall, a parent at school brought in two chrysalids of giant swallowtails butterflies that she had discovered on her very thorny citrus tree. One hatched within a reasonable time. The other appeared dead for weeks. And then one day in February, we had a butterfly!

The top and the underside are so very different. 

Our patience paid off.
