Now that my butterflies have all hatched it is time to say good-bye and let them go back to their natural habitat.
They were VERY pretty.
I ended up with all three hatching! Amazing
We opted for a morning release since there was still dew for the butterflies to drink in the yard.
I was super careful opening the cage. No tears this time around.
One took off instantly but the others wanted to hang around for a bit.
I had to put my hand in the cage to help them along.
Mommy snapped a few more pictures.
Suddenly, I had one on my hand and Mommy managed to get a picture of it! HOW AWESOME! I love the shadow the wings are casting on my hand.
Good-bye butterflies! I will miss you!
