Two and counting…and from what I hear about children, rearing butterflies seems somewhat similar. They don’t like you to sleep or shower. I woke up to the formerly impatient caterpillar, who is pictured on the bottom. And when I got out of the shower, the one on top had just emerged.
I’ll have to let them go when the weather clears up tomorrow, but I’m open to name suggestions anyway. The butterfly formerly known as the impatient caterpillar is definitely showing personality. He’s a little bugger! His buddy hadn’t even dried his wings before he was up in his face giving him a wing-bump. They’re definitely bro butterflies – scent glands are present on both. Only one chrysalis is still hanging on. I expect he or she to emerge the minute I sit down to eat.
