butterflies galore!

i forgot to post an update on my black swallowtail butterfly babies: they hatched! after a driving rain for much of the week, only two chrysalis remained, but on labor day, they miraculously opened ! it was really cool and i feel so privileged to have witnessed something of such exquisite beauty and grace!


  1. Is that an Agave your swallowtail is on? Thank you for the beautiful post.

  2. no: that is a 'color guard' yucca.

  3. wow what a beautiful butterfly. you are lucky to see all this. I have not seen this one neither in plains nor in northern mountains.
