Green Comma - Polygonia faunus

Last July I found this beauty climbing up the wall of our house. I took a bunch of photos and right before my eyes it started to turn into a beautiful chrysalis. I kept it in a jar till the metamorphosis was complete, got a few more photos then opened the door and released it. I watched it fly off. Pretty amazing.
