Our Monarch

so as it turns out, our chrysalis was older than this budding entomologist thought. she hatched yesterday morning. throughout the day you could see the wing pattern clearer and clearer. then about 4am, the Greek said you could see right into it, but i was too asleep to care. but in the morning this is what i saw.

the girls were so excited. we tried to set the baby free, but she didn't want to go. i guess her wings were still wet.

even when the girls came home from school, she was still sitting on our front porch. by the next morning she was gone. south america, i guess.
