Butterflies Are Free

It all happened so fast. Last Sunday the chrysalis was the beautiful jade green with gold seen above. But Monday morning, it had changed color - actually transparent with the butterfly's orange wings seen through it (on the bottom right).
I hoped I would get home from work in time to see the butterfly emerge, but it was not to be. The chrysalis was empty and the butterfly gone! Luckily, it didn't take long to find it sitting in my dining room window. I was able to film a bit of it moving before I opened the window and set it free:
