Yesterday, the butterflies emerged from their transformation. Hailey was really excited, and wanted to release them outside. We released them in the back yard and took a few photos.
Our caterpillars went into chrysalis last night. They are all hanging from the top of the cup. They sure did make a huge mess. Should be interesting to see how long it takes for them to change and emerge as a butterflies?
So Hailey asked me to show a photo of her with her gift, the butterfly garden kit. Here she is excited about her gift and can’t wait to see how they grow.
The caterpillars at this point are about 1/2 inch long. They are also very active, moving around and eating a lot.
Stay tuned for more butterfly updates.
Today my daughter’s birthday present from my sister’s family arrived. It is an Insect Lore Butterfly Garden kit!
So basically as you can see in the image you get a container with butterfly caterpillars in it and a butterfly habitat. The caterpillars are currently a little over 1cm long.
Hailey and I are going to try to post photos and descriptions every few days just to show how they are growing. Should be exciting.
