One Butterfly . . .

Our first butterfly of the season has broken out of his chrysalis!  WOO HOO! We waited a couple of hours to get to his full size, so that he’d be more likely to fly safely. But once he started moving around the tower, we decided it was time for him to begin his flight south.  I think he was ready to go too.  I cupped my hands around him and he climbed right on my finger.  Maybe he knew it was time to go.

Anyway, Jasmine wanted him to fly from her head – so out we went, and I let him crawl onto her hair.  Surprisingly, he stayed longer than I expected – but before we knew it, he was off and flying.

Now there are three more to go!  One just hatched this morning, so he’ll be going out later this afternoon – probably by dinner time.

“Gotta Go, Gotta Go, Gotta Go to Mexico . . .”
