A few weeks ago we planted a small crown flower in the yard in hopes of drawing in more monarch butterflies. The bulbul bird in Hawaii is a serious threat to these pollinators because they eat them at the caterpillar stage. So we are going to try and save as many as we can by checking for eggs to be laid and rescuing the caterpillars so they can mature to butterflies. Well we got our first one! I don’t know how we missed this one while it grew so big but now safely in our dining room we have a chrysalis! This is a lot of fun for our 4 year old (and mommy too) 😀
Happy Aloha Friday friends!
