Description:

My chrysalis has hatched. I took pictures of the butterfly and looked it up in my book. I was expecting a peacock judging from the book but it turned out to be a small tortoiseshell. It opened it's wings and i got my camera and it flew away before it got it. it was lovely.
I had another picture of a tortoiseshell butterfly so I decided to put it on with these.
