These caterpillars never cease to amaze us! Just this morning when I came home from work, they were still caterpillars curled up and suspended from their leaves. This evening when we went out for dinner, they’ve transformed into chrysalises already!
Apparently, according to Wikipedia, the caterpillar stage only lasts around 2 weeks.
The chrysalis stage lasts for about 10-14 days, so hopefully if all goes well, we should be seeing beautiful monarch butterflies emerging from our frontyard in about 2 weeks’ time! ^-^
