Day 17 is the start of hanging upside down for 10 days. It will molt its skin for the last time and be in the chrysalis for the next 10 days as it goes through and amazing transformation inside that chrysalis and then emerge as the monarch butterfly.

I had a nice day so I decided to head out to the prairie for a hike and to look for the Northern Rough-winged Swallows that make their nest in  the holes in the sandbanks.  From Cornell Lab of Ornithology - they get their name because minuscule hooks on the leading edge of their primary feathers. Running a finger along the edge of the feather from base to the tip feels like touching a rough file.  They are very good flyers, found often by water where they hunt insects in midair.  They have a long body with a  smaller head and bill.  They spend the winter in Mexico and Central America.  I really enjoyed my time watching them fly in and out of their burrow (makes me think they were taking food to their young),  another trip is required to check.  Catching them in flight was my challenge for the day.  The sky was nice and blue and there was some lovely prairie flowers blooming on the top of the bank called Yellow toadflax.  Patience grasshopper kept going through my head as I took photo after photo of blurry swallows, finally I got lucky and felt satisfied with  a couple.  Hiking along I woke up a nice young buck white tailed deer,  he stopped and looked back at me before he bounded off.  Another wonderful grassland bird is the Dickcissel.  They sure belt out a a wonderful song,  they look almost like a small meadowlark with a thicker bill.
