Here is a chrysalis from last year. It needed to be moved due to the fact it was TOO close to another chrysalis. You want enough room for the butterfly to spread his wings and dry out. What you see is the chrysalis laying in the palm of my hand. I have a long straight pin going through the silk button from which was made by the caterpillar for hanging purpose. Isn't it beautiful!
This is from the inside looking out. He is right on the zipper that allows me to open the cage. Luckily this can be an easy fix, in due time.
What I did here was added a piece of tape to stop the zipper. THEN I marked with orange as a reminder, me not to force it open.
