Audrey released three Monarchs and two Painted Lady butterflies yesterday.Â While we were in the field, I found a huge caterpillar.Â Audrey voiced my thought thatÂ 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.Â I was on my back so I could focus up.Â Audrey would place the butterfly and then move her hand away. The butterfly would fly away and then stop for a snack.Â Audrey would bring it backÂ 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.Â The most important was that Monarchs fly a lot faster than you think!
