Butterflies






So after our last soccer game at the rec center we released our Painted Lady butterflies that we raised from caterpillars.  It was so much fun.  I was really surprised at how difficult it was to get them out of their habitat, though!  I thought once we opened it, they'd be outta there.  Not so much.  Each and every one needed a couple minutes of coaxing to fly on their own. 

I highly recommend this nature project!
