Day 222 – 10Aug2011 – The Pupa Dance

Project 365 HG – The Pupa Dance.

Day 222 – Two of our Monarch caterpillars at the Historic Gardens did the Pupa Dance today, turning from caterpillars into chrysali… their handy cocoon where they will transform into a butterfly over the next 10 days or so.

Several of us were fortunate enough to witness #2 as he/she did the Pupa Dance – the whole process takes only a few minutes so it was lucky we checked in on them at just the right time.
