Magnificent Caterpillar - cont 5 April 2010

Monday am.
When we woke up, we saw a butterfly has emerged from the first caterpillar that transformed into a cocoon.

 the cocoon is white in colour after the butterfly emerged.
EnHui released the butterfly at the window.

Right- Butterfly flew out and into the gap between our oven and kitchen cabinet.

Guppies are live-bearers. They do not lay eggs.
