Yesterday morning, I noticed the remaining lime pupa took on a transparency look and I could make out the beautiful colours of the wings inside the case. This is a sign that the pupa is eclosing soon. I made it a point to check every day for these 2 days because I knew the adult butterfly would be coming out soon.

With that, I left for work.

By yesterday evening when I came back, what was left behind was just an empty pupa case.

I hope this butterfly has better luck than the recent one with deformed wings and I hope it flew off in search of a mate to continue the journey for the rest of its short life.
