Linking up with Wordless Wednesday

and Outdoor Wednesday


  1. OMG, there’s the “zipper”!
    Isn’t the chrysalis gorgeous? Like looking at jewels underwater…
    Thank you so much for sharing Anna; better than Christmas morning: )

    • Deb, I can hardly believe how excited I am! I think we will actually get to watch the unfurling! I don’t know how to post video to my blog, I hope to video the emerging. I’m so happy that this brings you joy, it’s nice to find kindred souls in this wide world who appreciate the gifts of the Mother, the gifts that are free but for the sitting still and watching. I agree it is like a jewel!

      • Anna, you have to upgrade to a paid wordpress account to be able to upload video, but if you create a free YouTube account, you can upload the video to your YouTube channel. THEN, you can embed the video into a blog post. That’s how I do Late Bloomer episodes. It’s a bit of work to set it all up, but once you do, it’s not too hard.

      • aHA! I knew there would be some catch for us less than tech savvy wonders ;0 Thanks for the info Kaye…I’ve never made a youtube, so I think I’ll wait on that for now.

      • Also, Deb, that zipper is not the way it comes out, it comes out from the bottom, at least that’s the way it must have happened on a chrysalis I photographed for my next episode of Late Bloomer. Anna, your monarchs may emerge before I get my episode online (Friday)! Enjoy! – Kaye

      • ‘K Kaye (LOL) thanks. Well, in that case, how ’bout “OMG, what a fabulous necklace!” then? No wait! What’s the fancy “symbol of office” thingme that Mayors wear? Called a chain of office – boring! Anyway, the Monarch’s necklace is incredible; just like this one…

      • It is such a beautiful gold Deb!

      • ahh…now I get the previous comment! Thanks Kaye!

  2. So pretty – just like stained glass!

    • I love it Heidi, that is just what it looks like!

  3. amazing pics anna

  4. incredible container of what seems dark, yet in fact contains the light and energy of transformation.

    • Joss, I tell you it is so uplifting…what a pleasure to partake of.

  5. Calling by as another participant from Outdoor Wednesday what a fascinating post to discover.

    • Thanks for stopping by Lindy. Glad you enjoyed the monarch.

  6. OMG that is so awesome, to be able to see it…I don’t think I have ever seen one at that stage!! So Cool!

    • I know imagine my surprise when I looked this morning, yesterday it was still green!

  7. What an amazing set of photos! I have never seen this up close – this is a jewel! Thanks for linking up today!

    • Thanks Linda, glad you enjoyed the photo! Thanks for hosting wordless wednesday again!

  8. Oh my gosh….this is incredible!!!! I’m left speechless.

    • Thanks for stopping in Anni, I’m glad you like the photos!

  9. This is yet another reason why I love blogging so much–you just never know what bloggers will choose to post. I learn so much and enjoy all the diverse beauty in the world. Your photo is such a good example of this.

    • Thanks Faye, I’ll join you in celebrating the wonder of the blogosphere. I learn something all the time and I adore the varied ways everyone puts their particular mark on things.

  10. […] Part 4 […]
