Another black swallowtail butterfly was born, on 8-9-2010. My daughter chcecked when she woke up and saw no activity. I never thought to check that morning, and while doing house work later in the day, i went into the laundry room (where the tank was located) and got a big surprise!
Our butterflly was out and was ready to fly away! We only got to spend about 3 mintues with him before he flew off into the trees. He was amazing to look at!
This one was a male, see the very small amount of blue on his back?
