Where's My Mom? by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, is a cute book.
Right on schedule we had butterflies breaking out of their chrysalids. First one, then another, then another, and one more....Out of five we have four butterflies flitting around our butterfly habitat. One chrysalid is left. He was a late starter compared to the others, but we expect his arrival on Wednesday. We'll enjoy them for a bit longer then let them go as per our instructions.
Here are a couple pictures of our beautiful creatures with wings:
Two butterflies are pictured here with two empty cases just to the left of
the bottom flower. The empty cases are setting on a bit of dried food.
When these two became chrysalids they stayed on the bottom of the
container and were attached to their food. I had to move the entire little
cluster to the habitat.
Up close and personal with one of our Painted Lady butterflies.
There are four Painted Lady's in this photo.
One to the left and three on the top pink carnation.
This project has been so much fun. It's incredible to me how the fuzzy caterpillars turn into such beautiful butterflies. One of God's wonderful miracles for sure!!
