Butterflies

My little bug lover is in seventh heaven.

We have been eagerly watching our caterpillars. The babies arrived two weeks ago. They ate and ate until they were fat little things. One week ago they formed their chrysalises and started their metamorphosis.

Today the first one came out.

She is beautiful.

We were actually able to see her wings wet and pretty plain and ugly. As her wings opened and she moved we could see the color begin to fill her spots.

She is an amazing creation. But not as amazing as my little butterfly.
