Waiting For Wings

Our batch of caterpillars arrived last Tuesday, May 5.  Normally, they are soooo tiny.  Well, these ones must have been eating a lot as they traveled from California as they were really big already.  We only got to watch them for a few days and upon our return to school on Monday, May 11, they had already spun their chrysalis.  We transferred them to their butterfly net yesterday.  It'll most likely be sometime next week that we will see them emerge as butterflies!  Below are a few pictures.  I will be adding more once our first butterfly is born.

They all moved to the top to spin their chrysalis except one.  You can see it laying down on the bottom.
 Hopefully, it'll still transform into a butterfly!

Home sweet home
