Small Tortoiseshell chrysalis

Recently we noticed a chrysalis and every now and again we photo it to see if it has changed.
Below is an image showing a colour change from a pale colour to the darker form of the Butterfly which is to emerge from it. 

In the next week this chrysalis will turn into a beautiful Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly.
