I am sorry, the past few days have been a whirl wind around here! I have been taking my Dad to physical therapy several times a week and with my announcement, contacting customers, etc. Life has been FULL! I have been taking pictures, just haven't had time to post them here...until now!!!
Remember the caterpillar-butterfly from a few days ago? Well, he STILL hasn't hatched but when we woke up Wednesday morning 2 others had come out of their cocoon! My children were thrilled. There are 2 pupa that remain in their cocoons. The on is still alive and is wiggling to get free, but it has now been 4 days and no progress has been made, so I am wondering if he will survive.
Funny how a small little creature can get me concerned? I look in on him often and my flesh wants to help free him, but I know part of the struggle will help him in his survival.
If you notice on the top photograph, the one cocoon has a red bead of fluid on the top. This is something they secrete...my 6 year old tells me it is a red drop of liqiod form the wings and this is what gives them their color. Hmmm. I do not recall reading that anywhere.
There are a few pictures of our THREE butterflies...we are still waiting for two to come out.
Thank you for stopping by! Be on the look out for BLOG CANDY this week!
