Yesterday, one of my sick monarchs laid 8 eggs!!! I have 3 sets of mating butterflies. I am hoping for lots of eggs soon!
This morning I was able to release my first batch of monarchs!
I released five monarchs and three painted ladies. I have two monarchs that emerged this afternoon, I will release them soon!
I love butterflies!
Today I found two very small caterpillars and six eggs. I was hoping for more, but glad I found some today.
This year I have been trying to get pictures of monarch hatching from their egg. I have watched three hatch! I took all these pictures under the microscope.
Beginning to eat egg.
Almost ready to hatch!
Coming out of egg.
Caterpillar eats his egg.
P.S. Meet “Bob” the caterpillar.
Today we did a color run. It was fun. I am not sure how fast I was, but I was the fastest girl and came in about tenth place. I had fun and hope to do it again.
It is butterfly season again! This year I have painted ladies and monarchs that I am raising.
Mark surprised me with this birthday rose.
