This week I discuss pupation, the chrysalis formation stage of the butterfly life cycle, and share footage of a monarch caterpillar transforming into its lovely jade green chrysalis. Although not all aspects of butterfly metamorphosis are completely understood, the process is amazing to witness each and every time! If you would like to learn more about the iconic monarch butterfly, see Mondays with Martha #'s 8, 16, and 31.
