A Small Gift To Northwestern

On The 26th

Friday a week ago we were driving around Lake Michigan from Allendale to Milwaukee. Decided that since it was a beautiful blue sky warm summer day, that we'd take Lake Shore Drive to Sheridan Road and drive by the campus of Northwestern University. Ten days before we'd released the first of our Monarch butterflies for the year -- and we had a cooler with a couple of chrysalises.

Before we left NU we discovered that one of our butterflies had emerged.

It'd been out long enough that its wings were inflated and dried

So it was time to let it go free

It's a girl! (click on image for larger)

Mrs. Dr. Phil placed it on a tree

And we let it be.
