Painted Lady Butterflies

One of my birthday gifts arrived in the mail. It turned out to be painted lady larvae. Within a couple of days the caterpillars climbed to the top of the container and formed into chrysalis.


Fun Facts about painted lady butterflies
. She can lay up to 500 eggs
. She may travel 1000 miles in her lifetime
. She breathes through her abdomen
. She tastes with her feet

It was exciting to watch 5 caterpillars metamorphose into beautiful painted lady butterflies.

It sure did make me feel like a kid again. :-)
Thanks for stopping by
