Nature's Bendy-Straw

About a week ago I came across a cocoon while doing some stuff outside and decided it would be fun to take it indoors and watch the butterfly emerge. Though it took about 5 or 6 days for it to complete its metamorphosis, seeing this beautiful butterfly made it a worthwhile wait in the end.

Cool! I love butterflies! Some of the ones we get around here are very pretty...purples and yellows, reds, oranges. We've even had Monarchs come through too.

That's a beautiful picture! My family and I had that experience one time as well... We had two butterflies! It was fun! :)
