No it’s not a tragic story, just that we have let Bella’s butterflies go (except for the one with the wonky wings, which is also no longer with us), here are some photos of the big day.

Sadly the only good close ups we got were of “stumpy”, the others perked up and began flying around the enclosure wildly as soon as they warmed up a little in the sun. As soon as the door was opened the first two flew out, I only had to help the last two out.

Bella was a little sad but knew we had to let them go.
