This is the Monarch Butterfly that emerged from the chrysalis a few shots back. A very handsome fella !!! Males can be identified by the two dark "scent spots" on their hindwings. These secrete pheromones to attract females. All my monarch pics can be seen at #billsmonarchs

imjustabill Raindrops keep fallin' on my head,
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red,
Crying's not for me,
Cause I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining...๏ธ

imjustabill Good things come in small packages !!!

This is my second monarch caterpillar to become a chrysalis ! About a day before the butterfly ecloses, the chrysalis becomes almost transparent. You can clearly see the wing pattern and at the bottom you can actually see an eye ! Stay tuned to see if this one's a boy or a girl !!!
