butterfly emerging from its chrysalis

I was pulling up weeds along the back hill and this butterfly caught my attention as it fought its way out of the chrysalis. I watched it for a few minutes and then went back to work. Some time later, Shane and Erin came around and I showed it to them. Then Lanie joined us. Of the four of us, I'm probably the sappiest one to think of the life implications--the metamorphosis and the struggle to be free. I sort of kept those thoughts to myself and continued pulling weeds.

We are now fostering about sixty tadpoles.

"You're taking them to the stream, right?" Shane asked.
