Black Swallowtail butterfly emerging from chrysalis

We were growing some fennel in a planter in the backyard and we noticed some tiny caterpillars on them. They turned out to be Black Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillars. I was lucky to be home and capture these series of photos of one of the butterflies as it emerged from its chrysalis. The picture above was take shortly before the butterfly flew away.
