Totally Off Topic: Swallowtail Chrysalis

A few days ago we found a caterpillar on some parsley in our garden. We brought it in with some of the parsley leaves and made it a little home in a glass jar. It ate and pooped lots.

Today I looked in to find this:

The caterpillar formed a chrysalis! How exciting! I've never seen a caterpillar from nature do this! I'll update if he/she hatches.
