Butterfly sighting

Location: Pewaukee (my dining room table)
Waukesha County

2 photos of the 2 Monarch caterpillars I have been raising: One changed to a chrysalis JUST LAST NIGHT! Photo #1 - the larger Monarch caterpillar as it looked exactly 1 week ago before transforming into a chrysalis. Photo #2 - the chrysalis as it looks today, 1 week old. As each butterfly emerges, I will release it to "fuel up" on the Torch sunflowers in my garden and then they can start their amazing migration down south to Mexico for the winter!
