Buttercup. . .

SuperBoy has officially named our new friend, Buttercup. A friend's daughter was selling caterpillars at our farmer's market and I bought 2 for the kiddos. We have been keeping an eye on them since they cocooned (sp?) last week, and today our first of 2 has hatched! Is hatched the correct term? Surely there's a proper one, but it's not flitting around in my brain right now. Here are a couple of pics of it and it's empty home. Stay tuned for the "birth" of the second beautiful baby butterfly.
