Oh boy! I can see wings in my black swallowtail crysalis this morning. Am looking for another crysalis for a young friend to watch with her little boy. How far away from the host plant and how high from ground should I be looking?
I have never found a chrysalis in the wild - of any butterfly. I'm of no help.
I'm so glad you are having fun though!!
