There's been so much excitement this Butterfly Season thanks to the Painted Lady Migration through Southern California! Many of us are now eagerly waiting for our own butterflies to emerge in order to release them into our gardens and backyards. However, tranferring the chrysalis into a larger space for the butterfly to stretch its wings can be nerve-racking because we need to be as gentle as possible with these little insects. Are you feeling nervous about transferring the chrysalis, or did the chrysalis fall? Follow along with us in this Behind the Scenes video so we can do it together!
