Inspection

We raised a bunch of painted lady butterflies from caterpillars and released them today. A few stayed with David for a while before flying away. He was pretty happy with the arrangement.

 

His finger is overlapping the wing; he is really careful not to touch their wings for fear of brushing off any scales. He is so gentle.
