CABBAGE WHITE ECLOSING
This is a White Butterfly chrysalis I found in my garden. It was really small - only about 12mm long at most. It had formed its chrysalis and attached itself to a support stick on one of my pot plants, in a most precarious location, so I carefully removed it and took it into our house. The next day it eclosed (i.e. emerged from the chrysalis) and my pictures show quite a change happening - and then there was a butterfly.
