Butterfly #4

Butterfly #4 hatched Sunday noon, and we observed the whole thing! First the head came out, then with lots and lots of effort, the legs, body, and finally, the wings. To our surprise, it fell! G. grabbed a stick for me, and in seconds the butterfly clambered up the stick to hang on the chrysalis shell. But...the wings are a little rumpled.

Butterfly #3-a male who we've named Slurpy, hung out through the whole thing. You can see him in the background in a couple of these shots.
