Update on Pupa

>> Monday, October 27, 2008

I finished the temporary emerging cage for the pupae. They are all hung and ready to go. I will hopefully post pictures as they emerge (if I am here). I am making a mini video on how to make one of your own so you can be a butterfly defender, too. It should be up tonight... I hope. I know the "other" videos I promised haven't been posted, but this is short and not really "wildlife" related, so editing was a breeze. Oh, I am SO making a butterfly defender logo/award. There are some of you that really deserve one already! Don't the pupae look happy and cozy? By the way, singular or plural is pronounced PEW-puh, although some sticklers pronounce the plural form PEW-pee but I think that sounds gross.

@ cheryl... me too! One of them is already showing the wing pattern so should emerge tomorrow. I wish I could be there for it.

Pew-pee? Yeah, I agree- that sounds gross!
Thanks for posting these. I can hardly wait to see them emerging.

@ wendy... I will stick with PEW-puh... sounds nicer. I hope I can get some pictures of them emerging!

Dear Mimi,
I love each one of these darlings!
Pew-puh are so sweet. I am a defender because I love them them so very much. I defend their milkweed too...
This is exciting.

Hey, nice blog. I found you from a comment you left on Bug Girl's site. Good luck with your monarchs.

Mimi October 28, 2008 at 12:30 PM  

@ doug... welcome! Thanks for visiting, and I think my monarchs will do fine. I will have to come visit you now!

@ sherry... I KNOW you are a defender. I am just hoping to encourage more. You have such a fantastic yard. There are not so many butterflies here anymore so we have to do what we can to protect them. Collecting caterpillars and pupae are part of it.
