I wanted to get a picture of the butterfly bursting out and so I hurried home and put the cage next to my couch where I could wait with camera in hand. Unfortunately I was tired and soon fell asleep for a short time and the butterfly sensing that I was not watching decided to come out. Since we live in a townhouse we don't have much of a yard so I decided to go to my parents house to release the butterfly and visit. No one was home but I decided to go into the back yard to release the butterfly and snap some shots anyway.
At first I placed the butterfly on one of the flowers in the garden. It sat for a while drying it's wings.
Then I decided that the flowers might be too low. Placing it on something higher would give it some height to fly from and would make it less vulnerable to ants.So I found it this nice flowering bush. I took a couple more shots and then left it on it's own to be free. Mary still has 4 more caterpillar so I will prolly have more pictures to share in future posts.
