It's a boy!

Made you look, didn't I?
We've been babysitting a chrysalis for our neighbor who is participating in a save the Monarchs program.

This morning, he broke free.

We took him outside and let him go.

We can tell this is a male by the oval shaped dots in the orange part of his wings.

My husband found 2 of these cocoons on our deck and had no idea what they were. He researched it and watched as it changed. I am amazed at the cocoon - the color and the glittery gold on it - so interesting!
