the butterfly backyard science mutherfucker

one day, last summer, our neighbor’s child brought over a tiny caterpillar in a small plastic cup.

the bug

So eliza and i fed it leaves from the garden and, in just a few days, our little caterpillar became a small pod.

the chrysalis

eliza carefully transported the pod into a nice ball jar and we waited...

we started to see changes...

the metamorphosis
a fucking butterfly!

we named our new little friend, Neilson.

but Neilson wouldn’t fly

why won’t you fly, Neilson?
there you go!


bye bye Neilson, we won’t forget you

the end
