Another monarch chrysalis in the shrubbery

Aha! Another monarch chrysalis.

This one is on the same shrub as another chrysalis that I observed last week.

When you're patient and persistent enough, with a trained eye you'll discover so many wonders of nature.

Since at least twenty monarch caterpillars ate their way through milkweed leaves to adulthood, I am convinced that there must be more around the patio in the shrubs, on stalks of grass, and who knows where else.

So far I only know of the five chrysalides, including the female monarch that emerged the other day.

I wrote about this chrysalis last week.

It is on a lower branch on the shrub.
