The Photo Hunters theme this week is hanging. I have some very exciting news to announce: after days of my chrysalides hanging around in the Butterfly Garden Habitat, my butterflies were borned! I have FIVE Painted Lady butterflies!They spend a lot of time hanging from the mesh sides of the habitat.
I like to keep a close eye on my new pets. At first I was a little worried about all that red stuff. I thought it could be BLOOD! But I read that it is leftover color and unneeded tissues from the butterfly's wing formation.Aren't they beautiful? They can eat from this orange slice.
This brave one came right up to meet me! His name is Charlie.
I am very excited that I got to witness the entire transformation from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. It is like a tiny miracle of nature. But I am also a little bit sad, because my Mommie told me that I will have to release them Outside soon. None of my pets seem to stick around very long.
