The following week we hiked Roaring Springs State Park, in Missouri.
Now for some tatting of Ice Drops! This pattern is called 'Birthday'
It has quarter inch bugles and seed beads. A 'new to me' project!
|The chrysalis has just opened.|
|Staring to emerge.|
|There, its out!|
|Only one set of wings are visible and very wrinkled.|
|Now you see both sets of wings.|
|Here you can also see HIS proboscis. (The little curled up drinking straw).|
All this takes less then 4-5 minutes. At this point, his wings will dry, then in 4 hours are so he will be ready for release.
