day 2213: Odin the Butterfly Whisperer.

odin received some painted lady butterfly caterpillars from insect lore for his birthday and we’ve been watching them make their chrysalids and patiently waited for them to emerge transformed.

we just missed them emerging from their cocoons but caught them soon after stretching out and drying off their new wings.

today was the day to let them go along their merry way. some flew right off, but one in particular didn’t seem to want to leave her caretaker and seemed to rather enjoy hanging out with The One Who Fed Her Nectar.

fun painted lady facts – she breathes through her abdomen, tastes with her feet and has 10,000 eyes!
