Fly Butterfly

Last week we set our beautiful butterflies free!
It is hard to believe they start out as these teeny tiny caterpillars and eventually change into something so beautiful.

The whole process happens so fast from the time they arrived at our home to the time we said our goodbyes it was probably only 3 weeks. 
We picked a warm day to set the butterflies free in our backyard and luckily for us one of them stuck around for a few photos before flying off into the sun.

The girls begged me to try and record one of the butterflies emerging from their chrysallis so I spent a good amount of time one morning checking over and over again for it to happen.  I thought for sure I would miss it so I was really surprised when I noticed it moving and grabbed my phone just in time to catch the butterfly emeging.
