I have 3 chrysalids of black swallowtail now residing in my garage. I'm assuming they won't eclose until next spring but I'm checking on them every day anyway. I had the enclosure outside but one of the chrysalids was eaten by a titmouse, I actually saw how she did it. So I have since brought it into the garage where hopefully they will survive. I don't know somehow I feel like I'm screwing with nature. I get that we need to boost the populations of butterflies but it still seems weird.

Anyhow, I am learning a great deal about the life cycles of butterflies so that's a plus, and I'm determined to see at least one eclose on my watch.
