It came out early this morning! We had checked on the pupa at night by when it had turned slightly dark. By morning, the butterfly was already out. We were disappointed that we couldn't see it emerging out of the cocoon. But fortunately got a call from Seema aunty and rushed over to their house in time to watch their butterfly tearing open the front of the cocoon, coming out with its wings curled under and gradually opening them as it walked around.
