What a Birthday!

Monarch Butterfly CaterpillarJacob got to spend his birthday at Audubon Day Camp.  What a lucky kid!  AND, it was insect day!  In addition to dragonflies, crickets, grasshoppers, and more, we hit the jackpot on the Orange Milkweed in the Herb and Butterfly Garden:  Monarch Butterfly and Milkweed Tussock Moth Caterpillars… plus some Milkweed Bugs – which got away before I could photograph them.

Monarch Mama has been hanging out at Audubon quite a bit this summer helping us with gardens, displays for our next exhibit, and raising Monarchs for our annual Butterfly House on August 18th.  She brought us the cutest Chrysalis Tree.  The Day Camp kids have been enjoying watching one Monarch after another emerge as adults.  Here’s Jacob, watching his birthday present:

It’s my Emily’s birthday today, too.  We celebrated last night.  Happy Birthday, Jacob!  And Happy Birthday to my very own Emily.
