We brought in some monarch eggs we found on milkweed leaves, raised them, hatched them, and had so much fun doing it!
And then this happened…
I was blown away by the beauty.
I had no idea the the green part would turn clear. When I was pregnant I often had these vivid dreams where my stomach would become clear like a window and allow me to look in and see the baby.
It turns out Monarchs really do that.
Here are a few pictures from when we released them. These are two different butterflies. We had three total.
