New Butterfly

Butterfly #5 hatched yesterday...and the wings are beautifully formed!! After a while we noticed, as the wings opened and closed, that it is a girl (no spots). So we had to re-name it, from Tyler, to Taylor. I haven't seen it eat, but otherwise it looks fantastic.

The second little fuzzy caterpillar? It climbed up the side of the little cage, and I thought maybe it would go into chrysalis or something. BUT the next morning, uh-it seemed to break into 2! Then on further discovery, we realized that it had shed its fuzzy covering for new "skin". The second little "caterpillar" was just a little skin of fuzz. Funny!
