Monarch Chrysalis

I found her when trimming briars and things to feed to the goats. I couldn’t register what it was for more than a minute, and then I was shocked that she was hanging out at my house in late October on a goldenrod plant, shocked that she was so strange and beautiful, such an intricate, fragile, complete little form. I replaced her somewhere safe that afforded easy viewing, but as you can imagine from the pictures, it wasn’t long before she was gone.
