Spreading Wings

The girls received their very own live caterpillars. It has been truly amazing to watch them grow each day. They quickly ate their way through the nutrients in their jar and formed chrysalids. After watching for nearly a week, five beautiful Painted Lady butterflies emerged. We’ve been waiting for warmer weather before we release them, but enjoy watching them drink from their tasty watermelon pieces in the meantime. Poor things’ lifespan is only two to four weeks. Boo.
