Well, three of these babies hurried up and made chrysalides...and two took a little longer - but D and I got to watch one transform RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES!!
Literally, this little caterpiller guy was hanging upside down wiggling like crazy...and then VIOLA!
He was all tucked up cozy inside his little cocoon like his friends!
And again - the picture quality from the Verizon HTC Incredible phone? Ah-MAZING! I don't know if I'm going to be able to give back this promo phone...and seeing as how this phone will cost me $529 plus an upgraded monthly plan...I don't see how I'm going to get it otherwise! GASP!
But the REAL moment you've all been waiting for...
And the winner is...
Comment #2 - Unplanned Cookin' - Jennifer!
Shoot me an email with your address so Kurt over at Insect Lore can ship you your very own Live Butterfly Garden! I hope
you your kids love it as much as I mine do!
I was soo nervous to transfer these guys to their new home - to await their arrival as Painted Lady Butterflies...
thankfully, watching a video on the Insect Lore website a few times reassured me that I could do this...though on the website -they have this perfectly round piece of paper that their chrysalides were attached to - our little friends appeared to have eaten half of it???
whatever...now, we wait!
I'd say by the weekend we should be the proud parents of 5 new butterfly friends!
