Papilio aegeus (Male) Emerged

Papilio aegeus (Male) Emerged
Such a pleasant surprise when I awoke this morning! The first of my caterpillars to pupate had emerged. A magnificent male from one of the two green chrysalides. I noted yesterday it had gone black across the dome part of the chrysalis but hadn't taken a shot. The second green chrysalis is also going dark and I'll attempt a photo later today.

Wingspan = 10cm.
