While observing all the wicked cool residents of Milkweed City, I began to wonder: where do the many Monarch caterpillars go to metamorphize into butterflies? In all the 12 years I've lived here, I'd never seen a chrysalis. Well, ask and you shall recieve! Walking past my Big Bluestem grass just a couple days after my ponderings, here it was! Wow! LOOK at that! You can see the beautiful butterfly wings almost fully developed, and the "vessel" has this weird "zipper-looking" row of "lights" on it.
Reminds me of that dude on the Picard genre of Star Trek...Giordi!
I checked again the very next day...transition complete!
