Painted Lady

We picked up a butterfly kit when we visited the gardens in Gainesville, FL this summer. My daughter and I finally sent off for our caterpillars and set them up in her room. Earlier this week they formed their chrysalis and we moved them to their 'tent'.

Wednesday evening, we found these in the tent. One chrysalis hadn't opened yet.

We've got several bushes out in our yard to support butterflies and added some milkweed at the end of summer too. In a few days (or a week), we'll release them outside.

Note: as of this evening, the third chrysalis had opened
