Swallowtail birth

When we moved our bedroom a few months ago, we found a cocoon crysalis behind our bed.  We assumed whatever was inside was dead, but of course, Noor wanted to keep it anyway.

Last night, she noticed that the walls had thined and she could see a bit of wing.  She placed the cocoon crysalis inside a bug cage.

A few hours ago, a beautiful Swallowtail emerged.  It is too cold to set her free, and there isn't anything for her to eat outside, anyway, so we're about to improvise a butterfly habitat.

Updates soon.
