We received them as larvae. We watched them eat and grow into to plump caterpillars. We patiently, but eagerly waited for their transformation while in their cocoons. They emerged as beautiful mini Monarch butterflies. And today we let them go. We planted some flowers that attract butterflies just for them. Hopefully they will stick around our back yard and come visit us again.
