The natural world is full of the most amazing wonders.
Like caterpillars turning into butterflies.
As a precaution, I took home our kindergarten butterfly hotel just in case any of the chrysalises decided to hatch during Spring Break.
And, tonight, Sunday, on the very last evening of the break, the first of them popped out. Oh glory, be! I released her (him? not sure, but with a name like Painted Lady, I'll guess her) into my back yard between rainshowers and took a portrait.
Isn't she a beauty? I feel like a proud papa.
Tomorrow I'll bring the hotel to school. Don't be surprised to see more butterflies.
