Mom found this monarch butterfly on our sidewalk today when she left for spinning at 5.30. She thought it had died and was sad because she really likes these guys. When she came home, though, he was moving around a little.
Fast forward a few hours later and we have ourselves a new butterfly pet. He might not make it that long since his wings are pretty beat up -- probably from the torrential rain this weekend, but at least he's got food and water. He seems to like the pomegranate nectar Mom made him and has tried to fly a little, though we keep telling him not to yet.
