Caterpillar to Chrysalis (image heavy)

  1. I saw this little caterpillar on my fence last night looking for a place to "hook." This morning I caught it starting to convulse. It actually worked for about 1 1/2 hours before I saw the first sign of green, then it was probably a couple of minutes to transform.
