A new male butterfly!

Good thing the iPhone can take such nice photos in low light when my other gear isn't ready!

Late last night I checked my caterpillars and found this lovely little man waiting for me! I'm not sure when he hatched during the day (or evening), but it was already dark outside when I placed him on this zinnia. I came back out to go to work this morning and found him on the same flower. When I talked to him, he fluttered his wings. So cool! I think the other chrysalis may not hatch until the spring (which is what usually happens this late in the season).  Hope this little guy survives!
