Latitude 17N

Thursday, January 22, 2009


Julian's butterflies have started hatching from their cocoons. Five down and five to go. The red stuff that you see on the paper disk is not blood. It is meconium which is the leftover color and tissue from the wing formation. Interesting stuff. We are going to nurse them with sugar water for a couple of days and then, weather permitting, set them free.
