Did you know they TICKLE when they land on you??!!
And when they "lick" your nose it REALLY tickles!!!!
They gave us these little q-tips soaked in gatoraide to "catch" the butterflies on...not that we needed them!!
Sugars has recently become afraid of "bees" which means any flying thing. She really didn't care for the butterfly tent, but gradually got used to the butterflies....so long as they didn't come TOO close to her.
Of course, now she can't stop talking about how she "loves the butterflies!!" So I guess all's well that ends well on that note!
And blooming flowers along both sides and down the middle of the tent.
But most of the butterflies seemed to like the high areas that weren't in shadow.
And the taller you were and the longer you stood in that area....the more butterflies would FIND you....
Sonshine was the only one of my 3 who was able to "catch" a butterfly. You have to be very calm and patient.
Let him climb onboard....
Voila! one caught butterfly!
This guy landed on my shirt so I was able to get up close and personal with him.....
I didn't know their bodies were spotted too!!
