Butterfly Life Cycle

June 1st
Our teeny caterpillars arrived on June 1st.  We received 66 teeny caterpillars.  We carefully separated them out, putting one in each container.  They grew very quickly!  Within a week, the first chrysalises were formed.  By Friday, June 10th all but two caterpillars had formed chrysalises.  Now we wait.  We expect to see the first Painted Lady Butterfly emerge by the end of this week!  Stay tuned!
