We saw a butterfly being born Yesterday!
Yesterday was the day that I was due to water my garden. I used my blower to clear away the pollen and processed to spread water everywhere. My 3 year old was looking intensely in one area so I followed his gaze and saw what I had always wanted to see. A butterfly was wiggling out of its chrysalis. It must have been happen over many days because we caught the last few hours of it wiggling out. When it was done we saw her hanging upside down and it was using its wings. I was so in shock by its beauty that I did not get my camera. I will wear my camera from now on. Her body was a furry navy blue. Her wings were mutli-colored ( Navy blue, black and had orange and red tips) Beautiful. I step outside today with my camera, but she was gone. I am happy that she chose out backyard to grow. My only regret is that I did not know she outside otherwise I would not have used the blower as she was being born. I will keep you posted and will take pictures of what I see.
Peace and joy,

What an amazing thing to see. God's handiwork! I can only imagine your joy at this.
Annette I've never seen a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis so I'm very jealous!!! It's incredible isn't it that a caterpillar can change into such a beautiful insect?
Sounds like a wonderful experience. You are completely forgiven for not thinking to get your camera. Some moments are so magic they hold you in thrall.
I waited and waited for over a hundrd to be born last year and missed everyone of them.You lucky person.Mine were cats that the Pasion Flower vine.They were hanging all over the place.
I saw one in like second grade but not any in recent years. You are truely blessed. I hope your little one was captured by it. What a great day you must have had.
