This will take you to a video I shot this morning of a Monarch cocoon being formed in my nursery. Can't believe it took only a little over three minutes!

It does not take long does it? Just an FYI.. the correct term for a butterfly is "Chrysalis" The term cocoon applies to a moth :) Still a wonder to watch.
