The picture to the right is a close-up of the one above. In it, the chrysalis is still closed where the butterfly emerges. In the photo below though, you can see the triangle at the bottom opening up on the sides, and the black wings of the female Zebra Heliconian Butterfly beginning to come out.
The next two photos are more of the same; her chrysalis is a tiny bit more open in each.
