The Photo Hunters theme this week is hope. This is a hard one, because I do not know exactly what a picture of hope looks like. But then I realized, my butterflies are the perfect symbol for hope!
When I first saw my caterpillars, I could hardly believe they would one day become butterflies. See? They started off a little bit ugly.Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
But I had strong hope that, if I followed the directions, my caterpillars would change into beautiful butterflies!
I became even more hopeful when I saw the beautiful golden chrysalis. Even though there was also a little bit of caterpillar poops.Then, it happened! My Painted Lady butterflies were borned!
Even though I wanted to keep them forever, I had to set them free. I hope they are happy. And have many baby butterflies.
