The release.....

Today, I released all of my butterflies. I still have two butterflies in their chrysalis, and they should be that way for a couple more days. Then, I'll have to go caterpillar-hunting again, if I want to continue raising them, which I will, of course.......

My butterfly forest!!

I took the cage outside and opened the flap, the butterflies clinging to the top for dear life

So I just picked them up one by one and set them on various flowers. Most of them flew away, but two stayed for quite some time.

This is one of the butterflies that stayed

Here I got a bit artsy with my camera work

This is what the chrysalis looks like once the butterfly emerges
