We have had a lot of fun and excitement around our house with all of the butterflies emerging. Our neighbor left on a vacation and left us with 5 monarchs in the chrysalis, a swallowtail chrysalis and another swallowtail caterpillar. Three of the monarchs and one swallowtail emerged at my daughter' school, much to the delight of her classmates. The entire second grade got to help release them a few days later. This swallowtail emerged while I was helping my youngest daughter in another room. We were watching it, left for a few minutes and came back to find a beautiful black swallowtail! We have another one that should emerge next weekend.
