Photo of the Day: July 2

2011-07-02
ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/50s, 18-55mm lens with 10x macro filter
One of our Monarchs in its chrysalis.  We currently have 4 chrysalis and one caterpillar in J form who will be forming his chrysalis sometime today.  I love the gold sparkles!  It is amazing to me how even their chrysalis can be so beautiful!  Next week we'll have our first butterfly!

You know, I think the Monarch chrysalis's are the most beautiful.

(*How DO you pluralize something that ends in an s?! This is a constant fight for me and my last name ends in an s! LOL)

This is amazing. At first I thought is was something made out of glass or porcelain.

Misty said...

Wow! This is amazing!

This is such an exciting stage. It's such a gift to see the process...and I agree with everyone else. The Monarch Chrysalis is beautiful rimmed with gold.

OH MY... how pretty! I saw a few Monarchs flying around this weekend... it's definitely time for them to come out and play! I didn't capture them on film though... too far in the distance. Can't wait to see your captures!
