first butterfly!

We now have eleven chrysalises in our butterfly tank and the first butterfly emerged today.

I’m posting this photo in a large size so you can see the amazing beauty and detail of the wing scales. Isn’t God’s gift of creation amazing?


Buttercup is fascinated!

We put some butterfly bush blossoms and a couple of purple coneflower blossoms in the tank to provide nectar. When she gets home from school, DD will release the butterfly in the back yard.

We’re hoping to watch a butterfly as it emerges. If we do, I’ll post some pictures.
