Butterfly Update!

We were outside watching the Giant Swallowtail going from tree to tree laying her eggs. She layed one right in front of us! This egg was laid at 11:49 am today. I can't wait to watch it from egg to birth to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. It's such a wonderful sight.

How cool is that?? I cant wait to see!!! We had hummingbirds lay eggs once and it was the nestest thing. Of course we have lots of birds with nest but the hummingbird nest alone was so cool.
