Painted Lady

Did I tell you about the butterfly kit I got? Well, I now have a butterfly. I will try again, but expect a nice little Patreon only post about the whole process, including that darn dog, next week. (Hint, I started with 6 caterpillars and ended up with 1 butterfly.) I took notes while they were caterpillars, but after they turn into a chrysalis, it gets very boring. And by the time I saw the chrysalis was open, the butterfly was all dry and ready to fly. 

I will be letting it loose tomorrow (they are native to all of North America, so no problem there). I will bribe my partner Abe to take lots of good photos of the new beast I helped create.
