We decided to get Painted Lady caterpillars again this year, and the butterflies have finally emerged! Between the ladybugs, katydids, butterflies, moths, and praying mantises, it is a regular entomology party over here! I had great plans to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar lunch, but having seen such fantastic ones lately, I figured I'd go a different route. My plan is to do a metamorphosis lunch, but until I work out the details, this fun and simple lunch will do for our afternoon of releasing our butterflies!
