October 2018 Sightings

Dolores Amesbury

My yard in CMCH
Cape May County, NJ

First noticed the chrysalis right outside my window on Friday afternoon. Then this morning around 10am I saw butterfly had emerged. It moved a few leaves over from chrysalis but I never once observed it spreading its wings. Hope it survives the night and wakes up to a sunny day!
