So Long, Nibbler

Nibbler hatched on Monday morning about a half hour before I got into the office.

Here's the empty chysalis.  Note the split up top.

Here's Nibbler drying her wings.  I had to set up some foam for her to grab onto as the inside of the Red Vines tub was too slick.

And here's Nibbler outside in the wild.  Spicebush Swallowtail adults have vastly different coloring depending on the gender.  Females have metallic blue on the hindwings.  Males have matte mint green.
