Fresh From the Chrysalis
Robert E Alter Reflections of Infinity
This Black Swallowtail butterfly had just emerged from it's chrysalis. A few seconds later it took off on it's first flight.

Thanks Doris! I was holding the twig as I took the photo. A few seconds later it flew away and I never saw it again. I find a good number of their caterpillars every year and I had this one in an aquarium until it emerged.
Thanks Bruce Bley, for featuring my photo in Macro Photography Group!
Rob, what an unusual colored butterfly, and a wonderful experience to see its beginning to life on the wing.
