Gracen Raises Butterflies: Caterpillars to Chrysalises

IMG 9873Day 7:  It’s official.  All of our fuzzy little caterpillars have successfully built chrysalises and are hanging from their container lids waiting for the big transformation to occur.

IMG 9876Though it’ll still be several days until they start emerging as butterflies, this morning we moved our little table and hanging structure directly under our homemade butterfly hut.  Now we wait patiently.  As they start emerging, we’ll set out some food on top of the cardboard box and the butterflies will make their way up to the top portion of the hut while the others complete their transformation.  We’re excited!!
