Well, we had five butterflies. Two were girls and three were boys. --doesn't make a great mix. it was wonderful at first. The couples hooked up, and the mammas laid their eggs. And then poor Tiny Tim came out of his cocoon and tried to find himself a honey, but they were all taken. He kept going after the girls, and they kept rejecting him. Poor guy. so after a couple days of frustration, I put him out of his misery and set him free.
A couple days later we released the others. They sat around for a long time, and let me take their pictures before they all finally few off. you can see the complete set of photos on my flickr account, and you can some of see my favorites here:
