Yard butterflies. While Atala have been in this part of the state now for a bit, this is the first documented life cycle I have of one at my homestead. As I waited for this chrysalis to eclose, a second adult landed nearby to nectar. Three-spotted skipper also showed again this morning. Ranges are expanding north my friends!
