Monarch Baby

Two weeks ago, while watering a geranium on our front porch, I noticed a monarch caterpillar hanging from it in the shape of a "J". Of course I yelled for everyone in the family to come and see and the very next morning it was a chrysalis. Such a perfect thing for a five and eight year old boy to be able to observe nature so closely. They diligently checked it a few times a day, and one morning we noticed that the chrysalis was transparent. The boys had school, so I set up my camera for them on time lapse to capture the monarch emerging. Quite a beautiful thing, the entire experience.
