Next, a picture just before it hatched. The green fades to transparency the day before so that you can see the butterfly within.
And here it is newly hatched! This one is a girl - you can tell because her black "veins" are thinner and she lacks a pair of black spots on her rear wings.
Here is another view - her wings are still dark and damp.
In this photo, the wings are drier, lighter, and you can see the the inner pair has more fully extended.
After I took this photo, we carried her outside on the stick which we stuck in our whiskey barrel planter near some flowers. She rested in the sunshine for a couple of hours before flying away!
