I can't believe this!!!! It's been a week since my Red Admiral became a pupa and to my surprise, I was just about to cook dinner and I noticed this:
What are you doing here already?
It has been so hot this week, temperatures of 32 degrees (reaching 27 degrees indoors) which is the only explanation for this little monkey emerging a week earlier than I expected! So this must have happened during the day, while I was around, but I just missed it again aaaggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!
This butterfly is just so gorgeous and this is just his underwings as he was drying out
