They tell me this is a baby picture. For some reason, when I got this on my phone, in a text message, after my brother’s wife went for the ultrasound, I just could not figure it out. I couldn’t “see” the baby in here. After some help from an outside source (another pregger lady in my family who happens to be another sister-in-law) I was able to see the image. At any rate, this is the little one we are waiting for. My brother texted me last night that they went to the hospital late to start the exit process. As of this morning, no baby yet. I hope he doesn’t get mad that I posted this. It’s a beautiful day to have a baby and become a new daddy! Good luck little brother and mama! Hopefully not too long now! Later.

Butterfly Video. Birth. Adaptation. Flight.

First up, as much as I could capture of the butterflies emerging. Excuse the jerky camera movement. I am not a professional. I was trying to get right in there!

This is our little gang fluttering around, flexing their wings. Again, some jerky movement and butterfly downtime. You can fast forward or watch it through. It’s actually somewhat soothing. I don’t know why.

And finally, the flight away from our temporary shelter. This whole process of emerging to flying took about 5 hours, approximately. This one is particularly long. Same bad camera work, but still really amazing. The real action is about at the  2:40 mark. It really is a cool thing to see.

In the end we still had two in the bin. Six in the world. And three still hanging.
