We have a butterfly!

Last night after we got home from church I noticed that the chrysalis had started to change colors. It was no longer green, but black and orange.
Then this afternoon shortly after lunch Abby and I got to watch the butterfly emerge from the chrysalis!
It hung upside down, resting, letting the wings dry for a while.
Then it climbed to the jar rim. I got it to climb onto my finger and I took it outside to release it.
The other chrysalis should hatch tomorrow!
