Denise Was Really A Dennis

We are a homeschooling family and my children are working on getting our butterfly garden recognized as a certified Monarch way station. Through the process, they have grown attached to many of the garden's visitors and usually name the chrysalides as they are formed. On this particular day, we found "Denise" had emerged from her chrysalis and my daughters were thrilled! Once her wings dried and fully opened, we discovered that Denise was really a Dennis!
