Helping Tiger and Julia into the World
Tiger and Julia are two butterflies. We helped them go from newly emerged butterflies in a plastic container to toddler butterflies, careening into plants, rocks and our shoulders. After calming down and gathering courage, they suddenly soared off, up and away!
Luckily for them, their lives will be spent within the humid environment of the Pacific Island Water Garden at the Franklin Park Conservatory, alighting on orchids, Lantana blooms and Dale Chihuly glass sculptures.
