August 2nd. update: This morning I noticed that the chrysalis appeared to look quite dark. Looking closely up close I could see the folded wings of the Monarch butterfly within. How beautiful. I hope I am lucky enough to see the chrysalis break and watch the butterfly unfold its wings!
What I find most pleasing about this discovery is that I had read that the caterrpillar attaches itself by weaving a silk-like mat to hang from. In this picture we can see the white attachment! How lovely!
