Boogies butterflies emerged from their cocoons early this morning. Unfortunately we did not get to see the process :(. I had checked them late last night after we got home from our outing to Midway Village and there had been no change but this morning after chores nine of the ten chrysalis had become Painted Lady butterflies!
Per the instructions, we are feeding them sugar water on tissue and flower blossoms, elderberry in this case.
The little guy finds them fascinating and has been remarkably gentle with his 'futterflies' and I hope he's not too upset when we release them later in the week.
