Butterfly Project: Update

Saturday, June 20, 2009
Firstly, I need to say how amazed I am by nature. Watching the caterpillars grow and progress has been incredible. I had no idea when we embarked on this project that it would have such an effect on us. We are so curious of them, always checking them out.

Secondly, all of the caterpillars have ascended to the top of the cup, and all but one has fully formed their chrysalises. Once the chrysalises are formed and they become a crunchy nub, it is time to transfer the thin piece of paper to which the chrysalises are attached to the top of the butterfly habitat where they will eventually hatch.

It's so cool...and to think that just the other day they were tiny caterpillars roaming around the cup.
