At 8:51 a.m. female Monarch emerged out of cacoon. After drying her wings via trial and error she did take off. Very smart since I had put her on a plant with tons of flowers a few seconds later she attempted to fly to a bush, when I looked at the flower plant I noticed a large flying insect which I killed. I did take her out front and after seeing that she was able to fly better and gaining her confidence she finally took off I took picture if her and she was a female. Later that day when I got home from errands, I found a dead female butterfly by where I had two other chrysalis in the indoor courtyard. I was surprised, shocked and saddened since I do not know where this one came from. Her wing pictures were different than the one That emerged in the morning or the one from the London Bridge Garden Center I already reported.
