For those of you new here, I raise Monarch Butterflies. That story is HERE
This fall will be a year and I never get tired of the metamorphosis. I conservatively have 40 critters this time around, all at different stages.
Two emerged yesterday, but they didn't stick around long enough for me to snap even one picture.
this little lady emerged while I was at work. I was hoping I wasn't too late to watch her flutter off. I found her trying to get through some rough foliage and as I was helping her through it, she climbed onto my hand & decided to hang out for a bit. (that pic on IG)
It's important for butterflies to hang upside down until their wings are dry, so as much as I hated to, I found a nice place in our Magnolia tree for her to finish drying.
It's a beautiful thing.
