My Boy and His Bugs

Look mom I caught a praying mantis!

He likes my hair

Anyone else and they would be freaking out to have a bug crawling up their face....not Dominic, he thinks its funny.

He actually caught two different praying mantis' a brown one and a green one.  We learned that it is not smart to put them in the same cage.  Apparently one was female...she ate the male. It happened so fast that it was a little unnerving.  Something so small can eat so fast. 9.29.12

Butterfly Project

Dominic caught a Swallow Tail in the back yard with his net.
Dominic found this caterpillar. We put it in our cage and watched it grow plump.

It turned into the most beautiful chrystalis. It was green and gold. Amazing.

Then out of the cocoon came this beautiful Frittilary Butterfly.

We also had some Painted Lady Butterflies that hatched.

We set them all free.
