Linda's butterfly hatched.
She found him on her milkweed plants when he was a caterpillar, and she stuck
him in the butterfly cage with some nice milkweed leaves to munch on. Then he
turned himself into a chrysalis, and then we waited for three weeks. We were
leaving the house on Thursday, when I noticed there was a butterfly in the
butterflay cage. So Linda reached in and grabbed him (he didn't want to come
out), held him for a moment, and then he flew off into the grapefruit tree.
He rested for a couple minutes, and then he was on his way.
