We had a crazy weekend filled with softball and dance while our caterpillars were busy at home hardening into chrysalids. On Sunday morning, we gently transferred them from their cup into the pop up mesh habitat thing when something started to happen.

That chrysalis shook it like a Polaroid picture for the longest time while we sat watching and waiting. We thought we might see a live butterfly birth! Turns out, the little gal was shaking to ward off predators. We were scaring her and enjoying it. Oops.
