The Butterfly Chronicles

Uncle Trevor gave our family a butterfly kit for Christmas. I finally got around to ordering the little critters a couple of weeks ago. In my defense, I didn't want to order the bugs when it was too cold, but I almost waited too long -- the Arizona heat is knocking on our door. Here are my happy scientists inspecting our new caterpillars that arrived via USPS on April 28th.

This was one of the bigger caterpillars. There are about 10 total in the two containers.

Do you see that webb-stuff in there? The carmel-colored stuff on the bottom is there food and droppings (aka frass).

They're growing...We hope to see chrysalides real soon.

We have butterfly cocoons now (chrysalides). I'll post pics soon.
