Default Our Butterflies

Thought I would share these here since I'm pretty impressed with them LOL

These are the butterflies that we raised up from teeny little caterpillars and released into our flower garden yesterday

hope you enjoy them. they are painted lady butterflies










In this picture you can see the proboscus (the thin black thing that looks like a leg... it's how they eat)

I love painted ladies!!! Hyia and I found a catiplillar on the willow tree today. WE will be watching it out there hoping a bird doesn't get it. I don't care how many times you see this happen, its amazing every single time.

Thank you They are very beautiful. I'm so glad he stopped right there on the flower and posed so nicely for me

It was funny when we released them becuase Hannah went right up to the little butterfly house and was looking in and one flew out and right at her and she was backing up and he kept following her HAHAHA she didn't know WHAT to think about that. and I just kept hoping she wouldn't swat it lol.

Thank you

I can't believe he let me get that close to him. I was seriously only inches away from him and he didn't even flinch lol
