Butterfly sighting

Aug 6 2010

Tod Highsmith and Joan Braune

Location: Our East Side Madison front porch
Dane County

We first noticed this chrysalis a few days ago, hanging from our porch. Yesterday it was still green, but wings could be seen through it. When we checked this morning at 9:30, the chrysalis had turned completely black. A little more than an hour later, the world had a new butterfly.
