They are exquisite and she does bring them in to go through the whole process. Patience galore and she feeds them to keep the butterfly healthy. I don't think I have ever been close up to any but the yellow with black and white. My DIL had a Lunar Moth at her home which is quite near where we live.

If my Biology comes back to me, the caterpillar (silk worm) spins silk to form the cocoon in which it changes into a butterfly which then lays eggs which hatch into caterpillars! I hatched a load from the chrysalis stage that I found on our tomato plants once - they were all Cabbage White - fascinating. How the Orientals managed to farm them for silk all those years ago is amazing. We have the Swallowtails here in Norfolk, and I tried taking a picture of one with my mobile but it would not stay still! Lovely things.
Lovely!!! Another friend loves butterflies. She actually grows them from the silk worm stage. Not sure if I am using the right words. I made a butterfly pillow for her as a surprise. She loved it and I know she would love this one you have done too. Thanks a lot for sharing.
