More black swallowtails are in chrysalises

caterpillar 3

Did you guess what color chrysalis this black swallowtail would make?

Caterpillar 3 made a brown chrysalis. In the picture beside it is a caterpillar that made a green chrysalis right on its host plant stem. What great camouflage! If you look closely the chrysalis looks like an animal. My best friend said it looks like a bat.

My last caterpillar climbed to the top of my butterfly pavilion to make a chrysalis. It is brown just like caterpillar four’s chrysalis.
