Butterfly!

This morning Tommy and I could tell the butterfly was close to breaking out…

Sure enough, just an hour after we’d gone upstairs… Tommy did a quick check and ran back to inform me: We have a butterfly!

We took him out front for his release.

And got our first clear view of this beautiful butterfly. Mom said he’s a Swallowtail.

We have three more caterpillars that have been found in the parsley out front. *Note: pic below not mine, but the same kind.

And since breakfast one has already formed his chrysalis.

What have we learned from this whole adventure?

Caterpillars poo like CRAZY. It’s true!
