Raising Butterflies

Shortly after the mantis arrived our caterpillars arrived from Evin's Uncle Howard and Aunt Margaret.  

After a few days of eating A LOT! The caterpillars made their cocoons.    

And after a few more days of waiting, they emerged as beautiful painted lady butterflies.  

Evin spent a lot of time watching them flutter around.  

And then it was time to let them go.  I didn't catch a single release but here's Evin shortly after one left his hand!
