The various stages of the butterfly were reproduced  if you look at this photo below the pupa is so small next to the one Rockee crafted.  Photos were also nearby to identify what they were looking at. They were careful to keep it all natural and not a single plastic egg in sight.

An awesome experience for anyone who did not realize like myself that the only host the Monarch thrives on is the Milkweed plant.  Want to get a Milkweed plant,  I understand Smarty Plants on n Dixie has them.  Thank you Rockee and Jory for igniting my curiosity.
