Early in the afternoon, I went to release the butterfly that eclosed this morning and the second one had eclosed, too!! How exciting!!
It, too, is a female. I took the castle outside and unzipped the opening. I had to encourage them to fly out.
I was so busy trying to video it that I didn't see where the first one went. The second one flitted over to the neighbour's Rose of Sharon tree where it stayed for a while.
Other chrysalises are getting dark so there will be ongoing releases over the next few days. By then, we'll have some more pupae.
