Because it was so wet yesterday, rain all day, Doug did not let any of the butterflies out of the cage. Luckily, in spite of the forecast for rain, it is sunny today so he has let 16 out. He puts them onto a piece of shade cloth on the mandarin tree. Half of them flew away immediately but there are seven here still drying out.
When we went back indoors I noticed Doug had one on his shoulder.
Doug released another 3 butterflies. 19 a daily record.
Just checked at 5 p.m. 2 more. They will wait till tomorrow if fine.
