well, we got our new vial of larvae for our butterflies a week ago and i switched them out without anyone knowing.. sneaky huh??
so these new guys were way more active, climbed to the top, hung for a couple days and formed their chrysalis..yay!
we transfered them yesterday to this mesh cage and pinned them to the top. if you click on the picture, you can get a real close up.. it is a hard shell they form.. so cool.
so..in 7-10 days we should have our butterflies to set free!! :)

my new book. i am soooo excited to pore over these amazing portraits..
My obsession with this blog here is no secret.. He (Scott Schuman) just published his first book which will be my next book buy. He had a post a couple weeks back about his collection of books and inspirations and this was his first and favorite sooooo I bought it. Steve McCurry is the amazing talented photographer who has for the last 20 years worked for the "National Geographic" and other publications on numerous assignments: along the Afghan border, in Baghdad, Beirut and the Sahel. His coverage of the monsoon won first prize in the World Press Awards, and was part of his portfolio when he was named Magazine Photographer of the Year in 1984.
Each photo is so full of emotion, it is amazing..
