No don't get yourself in situations,
Darling, that you can't handle.

Well, I found this paragraph, "
Examine the nearby area to see if there are any adult insects of the same species nearby. Butterfly and moth cocoons are typically guarded and protected by ants, so locating ants nearby is an indication that the insect inside is a moth or butterfly. Other insects that utilize cocoons for their transformation are typically guarded by adults of the same species.

From ehow. Beyond that, I can't find any specifics.

I don't know where you live, or what kind of butterflies you have in your area, but to me it looks like a monarch butterfly cocoon!
