Yes, we are the proud parents to a butterfly.
We went into labour last night when the chrysalis turned from silvery to black
and as always happens, it was born in the wee hours of the morning.
So we awoke to this…
Our butterfly is currently fanning her wings and making herself ready for her first flight.
This process takes quite a number of hours.
We are just delighted with our newest addition…
The Common Crow Butterfly
PS We have just learned how to identify male and female Common Crow Butterflies and have discovered that our butterfly was indeed female.
