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.
