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.
