Painted Lady cadui butterflies 


Here are the first two, they hatched yesterday afternoon, followed closely by a third one. I’m still waiting for the other two, they were about a day behind going into the pupa stage. One of the pupae fell off the brown paper disc, I hoping it’s still ok. 

That’s the underside, so pretty, those lower dots are iridescent blue, with a yellow edge. Photographing the top pretty side has proved difficult so far. Here’s my best attempt. 

If you look carefully you can see the empty cases & the dark one is still to hatch. 

I will keep trying for a better butterfly photo. 

I’m definitely going to be looking into keeping butterflies in the spring.
