Butterfly Release

In the midst of packing for our upcoming camping trip, we had butterflies emerging from their chrysalises. Michael had received a butterfly habitat for his birthday last month, and we sent off for the butterflies, which arrived several days later. Just before leaving for FESTY, Michael opened up his box of critters, figured out the instructions, and set them up in the habitat. He even put some leaves in there in case they got hungry.

Today while grabbing some clothes from Michael’s room, I noticed there were butterflies in the habitat. I called for Michael, he grabbed habitat and put it on the back deck, opened the door, and we watched off and on for a couple of hours while they all dried their wings, did a strange vibrating thing, and eventually flew away.
