I kept it or few days because we have windy and rainy weather, today was perfect:-), yup watermelon if not too much flower is around. Sad to see all 13 go, but they gotta be on their own, I got next batch coming out soon.

Great job:) Those are real beauties. Keep up the good work.
All our butterflies are "tanking up" for the trip, and I have no more ELFs.

Really cool pic! I've never seen anything like it. Congrats on the Monarch success! I wish I had had more of them this year.

with you guys expertise on planting milkweeds, and better knowledge with nectar plants, am sure next year will be plentiful of monarchs in your area:-). I am new to this, and my butterfly garden is so slow to grow. but I read so much from the internet, saved up all the eggs I can find, scouting the entire neighborhood for crownflower leaves, and raising them cats indoors, I got lucky :-). If I only live there in the mainland, I will probably crazy raising these guys! remember now, I just started in mid July this year...can't believed I raised and released so much, and I got plenty more...how I wish I have a tagging sticker thingy and tag these guys so I know how far they can go..well, at least here in Hawaiian islands:-).
