Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) on pupa

This monarch butterfly hatched inside of an orange bucket I had outside the house. I was about to take the bucket fishing when I noticed that the pupa (cocoon) was inside. So I set the bucket next to my front door so that I could see the butterfly hatch. When it hatched one morning a couple of weeks later, it clung to what was left of the pupa for a couple of hours before it flew away.
