Have you ever gotten to watch a Monarch emerge from it's chrysalis? Many have visited our house on their way South this year, and I was (finally) able to track down some chrysalises and capture this amazing footage. I have put together a time-lapse video of two Monarch butterflies emerging, as well as some other pictures leading up to the event. Hope you enjoy it.
By the way, the bright orange aphids are Oleander Aphids (Aphis Nerii).
