The Butterflies Hate Us.

I'm serious.
Those darn butterflies could not wait to fly away.
I didn't even get a shot of them!

Perhaps it had something to do with Breck showing them all his dinosaurs and the noises they make.

I was really hoping to get a cool shot of the butterflies on a hand or face, but that didn't happen. In fact, I think those poor butterflies met a quick and ugly end. Soon after releasing them, I saw a bunch of birds dive bombing and maneuvering through the trees.

Things didn't go much better inside.
One butterfly did not develop properly - he was missing both lower wings - and died in the "cage". Yes, we fed it. And another one only made it half way out of it's cocoon before biting the dust.

But, we still have one healthy, living butterfly left!
...for now...


  1. I have been wanting to do this too. Sorry you didn't get any good shots of the butterflies.

  2. I'm sure they don't hate you : )
    Sorry to hear you had such a hard time with them, maybe you all can try again

  3. I'm so sorry! We let ours out in our house in one room we closed off so they could fly around and we could catch them.

  4. Awww...that is so sad that they left so quickly. Maybe let them out in the bathroom next time. Might work better. Maybe. Just maybe.


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
