It was so neat, seeing it emerge, and actually getting a photo of it! I actually had about 3 or 4 shots, but I wasn't steady with the camera, and ended up being too blurry to see it, except in the last one. At least it shows the head is still not fully out. It was several hours before it finally started to move it's wings like it wanted to fly. It just hung there for a good long while. It turned out to be a really pretty butterfly. grinnnn

Gorgeous. Took me a while to get here to look at that but it was well worth the wait.

Is it a monarch? I don't really know butterflies all that well.

Sure is a pretty one! Glad you did not miss its reawakening!

Definitely not a butterfly expert, but monarchs are the NYS butterfly so I know I've seen them before laugh I think they have white markings on the tips of their wings...kinda like polka dots almost- at least all those I've seen have had them - but I don't know if it's a 'requirement' laugh

Nope, not a monarch.. this is a monarch (I borrowed this photo, uploaded to my photobucket, but it's NOT mine!)

Yep. Seeing the actual monarch, I know the other isn't. Haven't seen one of those in a while, I guess.
