The next time I checked he was about half covered with cocoon, and looking more and more like a dead passion flower leaf all curled up and brown- isn't nature just amazing? The finished product did look just like an old dry leaf, to keep predators at bay while the magic works. A second one also went upside down a day later, giving me two cocoons to watch from my office.
I figured I had some time to get the picture of the finished cocoon, but time flies as it does, and before I knew it, a mere 9 days later, the butterfly had flown the coop!
I quick glanced over to the second cocoon, and there was the little butterfly, already out of the cocoon, but not yet taken her first flight.
