Happy New Year
In the abnormally warm temperatures of December 2006, this caterpillar formed into a chrysalis a couple of months late. Through January it was had gotten a bit cooler and it wasn't clear that it would actually survive - some newspaper on either side of it helped protect it somewhat in its rather precarious location on a chain link fence. Eventually, in mid-January, it finally metamorphosed, though of course, I happened to be away at the time it broke free.
