Friends in the yard

We had an exciting evening last night. The Oak man discovered a chrysalis hanging from a branch of our lilac tree. Judging from the beautiful golden spots, it looks like it could be a monarch, although it's possible that it's just from the same family. I hope we can catch a glimpse of it's emergence!















After that, we spotted a large praying mantis hanging out on the window.















And then finally we spotted this beautiful grasshopper also hanging out on the lilac. They were really thrilling discoveries for us, and SG ran to get the neighbor's kids who were pretty excited as well. Finally, as we were hanging out on the porch enjoying the evening a hummingbird flew past! Too quick for me to get a picture, but what a treat for us urbanites!
