Common Crow butterfly chrysalis

9 Mar

Recently I found a Common Crow (Euploea core) caterpillar.

I decided to track the progress of the amazing chrysalis they make. A beautiful, golden metallic colour, that looks more like a piece of jewelry than anything else.

Progess above from Day 1 to about Day 9.

And finally, a beautiful Common Crow butterfly emerges.
