Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Citrus Swallowtail

Me and my daughter found a chrysalis in our vegetable garden the day before yesterday. We pried it carefully off the wooden box it had attached itself to and we’ve kept it in a jar since then, checking on its progress every morning and evening.

This morning we were lucky enough to watch a Citrus Swallowtail break out of its cocoon.

Admittedly this is likely the rogue that’s been ravaging my lemon trees of late. But I suppose he or she can be forgiven. That was another life.
