Monarch Emerges

When I collected my first monarch chrysalis parasitic wasps emerged instead of a butterfly. Our second chrysalis was from a checkered swallowtail that had been damaged by a six-year-old throwing it on the ground. Third time was indeed the charm, however, and a lovely monarch emerged from my latest chrysalis. We let him or her hang out in the apartment for the evening and then released it the next day.
