This morning our first painted lady butterfly hatched. It hasn't moved much but then I did see it open and close its wings just once. From the outside with its wings closed it looks like a moth and open it looks like a monarch butterfly. Lore Butterfly Garden Kit also makes kits for hatching ladybugs, and praying mantis that can be found on amazon.com. We found this kit to be fairly easy and a nice way to witness the butterfly life cycle.
