One of our butterflies cannot fly. His cocoon fell to the floor, which bent his wings. We feed him sugar water which we put on tissue paper and carnation flowers. We also add a few flowers from the garden for him to feed off. My little girl has called him Flamingo after one of our Butterfly Lullaby fairies.
Here is my little girl setting free the other four butterflies:
Baby caterpillars arrived under separate package, which I had to order from an on line website.
Swap stories. We hope to search for butterfly eggs and find out how to raise other wild butterflies. Any information would be so appreciated. Great adventure for Mummy and Daughter!
