Major and Minor

BUtterflyAudrey released three Monarchs and two Painted Lady butterflies yesterday.  While we were in the field, I found a huge caterpillar.  Audrey voiced my thought that  it would be neat to get a picture of the butterfly flying above the caterpillar.

It was fun trying to get the picture we were attempting.  I was on my back so I could focus up.  Audrey would place the butterfly and then move her hand away. The butterfly would fly away and then stop for a snack.  Audrey would bring it back  so we could try again.

I ended up deleting a bunch of pictures. Audrey and I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot.  The most important was that Monarchs fly a lot faster than you think!
