Butterflies are free

My caterpillars finally hatched into Painted Lady Butterflies. They lived in the Butterfly house for a few days. We fed them sugar water. It was cool to watch them unroll their "tongue" to drink the water. Finally on a non windy day they were set free. They quickly flew away but not before I captured one flying. Kitty was obviously very excited to watch the whole butterfly release thing.

Mary...I had a great time in Peru. While I was eating dinner with some people from the church office one of the couples(the Joo's from Peru) asked if I knew the Zollinger's from Rexburg. I guess they traveled with you while you were in Peru. What a small world.
