Monarch watch

We took the girls to the Monarch Watch event at the university this weekend.

As Olivia got up close and personal with with a caterpillar, she quietly informed the staffer that “caterpillars turn into butterflies.”  The helpful response came back, “WELL ACTUALLY, they turn into chrysalis FIRST.” . . . Um, thanks. She’s three.

The butterflies were contained in a mating enclosure, making them somewhat hard to photograph.

I can tell you, though, these two should get a room.

We came home with a few butterfly plants for our garden–hopefully we’ll have our own Monarchs at this time next year!

One response to this post.
