With the arrival of spring and warmer temperatures, TYWKIWDBI will soon be featuring more butterfly/moth posts.  We'll be raising monarchs and swallowtails, and hopefully this year some sulphurs.  Pictured above is the chrysalis of the cloudless sulphur (Phoebis sennae) (credit M. Hedin), which I found in a short photoessay on the subject at The Ark in Space, via Webphemera.  Like the swallowtail, it supports itself with that incredibly thin, almost invisible, harness of silk.
