Photo Hunters: What IS that?

The Photo Hunters theme this week is what IS that? Can you guess what this is?

It is a chrysalis from my butterfly experiment! All five of my caterpillars grew up, climbed to the top of their little cup, and turned into chrysalides! I learned something new, because I did not know the chrysalides would have beautiful golden accents. I thought they would be much uglier. I also did not know the caterpillars would poop all over.
Now it is time to transfer the chrysalides into the Butterfly Garden Habitat. You have to pin the paper disk onto the Habitat. My Mommie had to help with this part because I am Not Allowed to handle safety pins.
I hope the butterflies hatch soon! The instructions say it will take seven to ten days. I cannot wait to witness the Miracle of Birth!
Oh, hi Mommie. I am just keeping an eye on my new pets. Do not worry, I will not bother them.
