I walked into the dining room Thursday morning and heard a fluttering noise coming from the butterfly garden habitat!
Our butterflies had emerged!
We stopped at the store for some watermelon, as I had read they like it. Seems that is true.
I could swear those two on the bottom right were getting really friendly, though they were only a day old.
Sadly we found one dead the next day. After I pulled it out, I noticed part of the wing was almost broken off. I remembered that two of them kept flying into each other. Wondered if that was what killed it.
Then we found one more, and then another dead.
So we decided it was time to let them go, even though they only emerged 5 days ago.
Only two live butterflies left to set free into the great big world.
Tabitha was able to get one on her finger. Unfortunately, while I was watching her with that one, the other flew away.
This one flew around the yard and then landed in the grass.
Amelia was thrilled that she got a chance to hold one. She had been devastated that the other flew away so fast.
Unfortunately, Harold never did get a chance. Poor boy.
Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.
