As the week passed, our cat Bouncer had played with the net and injured one of our three butterflies...who has since died. We decided to set the surviving two butterflies free -
The one we were watching closely died. The fifth cocoon still has not hatched. I am watching it daily, but no changes and I am wondering if that one has died too, although it is still in the net.
As we were setting it, one butterfly landed on Noah's leg, but I caught the picture as the butterfly went to the ground. I am not much of a gardener - but if you look closely in the dirt the butterfly is there, closed in one image. The other has his wings open.
Unless that other cocoon/ butterfly comes out. This will be it for this particular Science project! I will post different projects as we do them. Thank you for tuning in to see the changes! I am glad you enjoyed them.
Have a blessed day!
