Butterfly Beauty

Latley, the kids and I have become quite obsessed with our butterfly vine out the back. We pass under it each time we go out in the car, walking slowly with our heads turned to the sky. We find caterpillars muching away, and new chrysali pop up every day.

We check to see how many have vacated and flown away, and we have even been lucky enough to stumble across a beauty emerging from the chrysalis.

I would love to know more about who is who in the zoo... do you know what any of these beauties are called?

Aren't they gorgeous! I could sit and watch butterflies all day...
