Butterflies

We have butterflies!  We were shocked at how fast our larvae got fat and turned into a chrysalis.  One of our observant students noticed a butterfly emerging.  It was amazing!  It was many hours until its wings were dry and it was able to flutter in the cage.  A painted lady only has a life span of 2-4 weeks.  We will be keeping our butterflies well taken care of and enjoy observing their colors and behaviors.
