Chrysalis #1: Sparkles

Our first chrysalis!  We noticed "Sparkles" hanging upside down in J-formation last night, and wondered how long it would be until she shed her outer skin. 

This morning we found our answer!  She developed a brown chrysalis to match the twig that she attatched herself to.
We transferred "Thomas the Tank" into the same jar as "Rainbow" to give the chrysalis some breathing room, and got to work creating a butterfly cage (two 10" embroidery hoops and 36" of bridal veil tulle- voila!) so our brand-new butterfly will have a wonderful place to get her bearings.
