For over a week the golden wiggling chrysalis has remained attached to our front gate. Early this morning we were fortunate enough to witnessed a miracle happen. Photos # 3 to # 8 were taken within two minutes (and 10 seconds). This beautiful Australian Black Jezebel Butterfly stayed for over two hours to adjust to its final metamorphosis.
This gave me time to gaze in wonder at its intricacies, to appreciate the miracle and be grateful. It made me feel strangely plain and underdressed. Jezebel then flew off to enjoy being the butterfly it was created to be.
