Hoping To Be A Butterfly

My children are working on getting their butterfly garden certified as an official Monarch butterfly way station. Because they are journaling the experience, we check on the garden several times a day. While they write about their findings, I take pictures with my cell phone to document the progress and changes in the garden. This picture was taken the day we discovered the third chrysalis and my daughters named him "Danny". I am thankful I got this picture because Danny never became a butterfly. This picture captured a beautiful moment in his short lifecycle.
