Blessed event this morning. I went out to fill the bird feeder and found that the Monarch chrysalis had hatched. Exactly two weeks and one day since it started pupating. That was fun!

Pretty neat.
Will you be posting the time lapsed video?

We get a lot of Monarchs through here in the Fall, but they are probably just migrating.

This kind of thing never happens in SA. If you burn yourself with hot coffee tough luck! If you want a rare steak or burger you can get it anywhere and Sue is a woman's name, not an action you perform to blame someone else for your stupidity
