Butterflies from May

 For those of you who remember snakeapillar this is him/her all grown up.

 Poor thing picked a really rainy day to come out of it's cocoon.

 Luckily the Lemon/Lime Tree was under the eves of the house so didn't get the full brunt of the rain.

 And once the sun came out it seemed to do OK and Mom got some pictures of it before it got strong enough to fly away.

 It had to exercise it's wings and get them dry.

 Sometimes it fell down and had to climb back up.


 But eventually...

 It learned to fly.

  3. That is a beautiful Giant Swallowtail. It's so cool to see it right out of the cocoon before life beats them up a bit.
