Having plenty of wild violets available for food they kept the caterpillar so as to watch it become a butterfly.
They sent more pictures. Then they set it free to travel farther south for the winter.
Gotta love those kids.

What a beautiful chrysalis.

Awesome photos. Awesome series. And awesome that your granddaughter is witnessing nature up close.
