Audrey 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!
