I've kept my chrysalids outside in a pop-up net since the temperatures started dropping. This past week, the weather has been warm (for autumn), which forced one of my Black Swallowtails to emerge from its chryalis :( Guess there's nothing I can do... Just sad to see.

I forget I'm not on a small forum.. I should add that I'm in zone 7, just about to enter winter.

The same thing happened to some of my chrysales, too. Fail...
I never got another generation either:(
