Kelly was trimming back the squash vines today. Luckily, I saw this hanging off a leaf as I was collecting the clippings for the chickens... It's less than an inch tall. It's the chrysalis of a Monarch butterfly. When the caterpillar is ready, it turns into this, and reforms into a butterfly inside. After 10-14 days, it will emerge. I cut a strip an inch wide from the leaf, put it in a blueberry pint container, and have it sitting on a shelf.
