My First Butterfly!
Finally, one of my butterflies has emerged! Yay! As I got out of bed this morning, I looked into the little habitat, as I have been every morning for the past couple of days, to find one of the little buggers wiggling its way out of its cocoon. I immediately snapped a couple of shots with my camera (through the plastic covering on top, hence the blurry picture), then decided to unzip the top to get a better shot, maybe even some video. But as luck would have it, the little butterfly was just finishing up and already walking around by the time I got my stuff together. So my picture of her (I decided this one's gender is female, for no other reason than the fact that I say it is) is not the clearest, sorry. But I did get a couple of better shots of the butterfly afterwards.
I think I'll name her Bella. hee hee Get it? Her wings are still a little folded over and not quite dry. Within minutes, her wings had dried completely and flattened, but I didn't get pictures of that. I'll take more pictures after the others make their debut.
"I see you!"
By the way, this is my 100th post! Yay me!!!
