Raising Monarchs Part 1

I already blogged about our visit to the butterfly farm here. A couple weeks after the visit we picked up our 'butterfly kit' which was a tropical milkweed plant that had two tiny monarch eggs on it. I didn't get any good photos of the caterpillars devouring the first plant. I had to buy a 2nd plant just for them to have enough food!

These pictures are of the 1st butterfly that emerged from it's chrysalis.

Tigger helped me take it outside and it hung around for a few minutes before going off on it's life adventure.

Next up is our most exciting release!!!
