we have critters...

I know,
Sound worse than it really is.
We are actually "hand raising" Painted Lady Butterflies just like we did last spring.
We had so much fun last year that we had to participate again this year.
Funny, the day I picked them up we were in the middle of a blinding snowstorm!

Snapped on the 4th of May the day after we "brought" them home.

Two days later and these little critters are already on a major growth spurt.
Snapped on the weekend.

And here is where they are living today:

They are starting to cocoon so they are entering into the next phase of their life.
Should be interesting to watch!
