First Spicebush Swallowtail chrysalis

My first Spicebush swallowtail cat has made it's chrysalis successfully!  I currently have 4 more cats of different stages to go. I have really enjoyed raising these cats because of their unique cartoonish features. Here are a few images of the chrysalis and the other cats. 
This last cat should be turning green by tomorrow !  The chrysalis should hatch in another 7-10 days!  
As a side note ~ not all eggs found under leaves are worth collecting. I found this egg the other night and this crazy looking thing came out of it. Luckily I kept it in a separate dish, since I wasn't sure what was inside !

Yikes!  Thanks for visiting! }!{
