monarch caterpillar ⇒ monarch chrysalis

watch a monarch caterpillar (fresh from our butterfly garden) wriggle free of its old skin and dramatically, energetically, transform into a chrysalis!  this four minute, real-time video might not be the prettiest or most professional “chrysalis reveal” on youtube, but it does feature some delightfully unscripted four- and six- year-old commentary!

{my personal, metaphysical uptake, after witnessing this amazing metamorphosis:  that caterpillar doesn’t just hang there, waiting to be transformed.  it is active, an active participant; it WORKS for that miracle!}

wishing you an active, miraculous day!
