Clara’s Butterfly

Last month, my daughter Clara came back from a trip up north with several monarch butterfly caterpillars, which she took care of.  Each one went into a chrysalis, and all but one turned into butterflies.  Today the last butterfly emerged, and I thought I’d share a picture.

Why?  Because it’s a neat picture from my daughter doing something cool, that’s why 🙂

This one emerged after the others, which have already been released.  We’ll probably give her a day or so to get used to the wings, then turn her loose.
