Just hatched

One of the monarch eggs on the plant I'm observing. I knew it looked ready to hatch this morning, but I was not able to just sit and watch it all day, so I just kept checking on it when I could and sure enough, I managed to just miss the actual hatching.

Here's the little guy eating his first meal: his egg shell.

At last check, he had finished eating the shell, and had also eaten a teeny little hole in the leaf, but it's too dark to take his picture any more today. (The pictures above were taken outside in the sun.)
