130/365 Metamorphosis

Ruby got a butterfly kit for Christmas, but we obviously had to wait until it got warmer to order the caterpillars. She's named all five little critters and they have all now pupated - though one, Tiny, is around the back of the disk in this photo.

 

Tiny, you see, was the runt of the litter and was at least two days behind the others in creating their chrysalis - so we had to put them in their net enclosure while Tiny was still crawling about. Tiny has formed their chrysalis behind everyone else because they're special.

 

The other four may hatch tomorrow - Ruby is VERY excited!
