Freshly emerged: Zebra longwing

Zebra Longwing Butterfly


I watched this zebra longwing emerge from its chrysalis in the garden this morning. It's flying now. It flew off, then came back to the tomato stake (where it initially formed its chrysalis) and stayed for awhile before heading directly to a chrysalis that's hanging under a banana plant leaf. It hovered just beside the chrysalis fluttering its wings. Maybe there's a friend in there.
