All it takes is one butterfly to enclose and then the rest seem to follow. I found our first female of the season in the butterfly cage this morning. She was very content to stay on my arm but I eventually got her to be interested in some pretty purple blossoms. A male enclosed later in the early afternoon. He wasn't too interested in being photographed or touched so I let him rest a bit inside the screened porch before releasing him outside. It appears there are two or three more chrysalises that are very close to enclosing. I wouldn't be surprised if they go later this evening or early tomorrow.
