Empty Shell

Chrysalis. Fuji F10
16th September 2014

I spotted this empty Chrysalis stuck to the side of the water butt today.   Given it is quite long, I am amazed that I had not noticed stuck there before while the caterpillar inside was transforming to a butterfly (or moth).

The thin shell is super delicate but with wonderful delicate patterns.
