Dangle Dangle. It spent the afternoon like this.
The second one decided there was just one good spot on the plant. I told the second one that it should not mess with the first one. It did not listen.
No. 2 next to no. 1
A couple of days later.
Pretty little things.
Devastated! The first one came loose of the leaf and is hanging by thread and then I noticed a hole in it! Someone ate the little butterfly. The other one is still looking okay an I am waiting patiently for it to emerge. They are meant to be in the chrysalis for about 2 weeks...it has been almost 3. So perhaps they are both lost? I wonder if the recent stormy weather has been a factor.
These are Common Crow butterfly Chrysalises and are common on Oleander. My Nana used to have these on her Oleander. I still scour the Oleander looking for them when I go over to her house.
I love seeing bugs on our plants. This is why you have plants, to have these beautiful bugs.
