We Have Takeoff!

Our first butterfly has emerged from his chrysalis! When we got home from church yesterday, the punk came running downstairs to let me know that we had a butterfly!

The punk and his pet.

The basher examining our specimen.

Come out, little guy!

He stayed on the grass for over an hour, presumably hardening his wings to prepare for flight.

The next chrysalis, waiting for his turn.

Goodbye, Friend!

I'm incredibly fascinated by this. I want one!

Becky, it's been such a cool experience! Next fall, find some milkweed and you will probably find these caterpillars. Just put them in a big jar with plenty of holes and plenty of milkweed. You have to put fresh milkweed in every day. Then voila! Butterflies!

K, this is like the coolest thing ever. I'm dying to do it with my girls. Do they have milkweed in Arizona? I'll look into it. :)
