It was really neat watching him "pump up" his wings! It took quite a while. Eventually Jeff got tired of holding him, and placed him on our purple Butterfly Bush. He sat there happily for the rest of the day. When we went to bed we checked on him, and he was still there. I was worried about him. I thought something might come along and get him!
Thankfully, in the morning he was ok! We were out all day, and when we got back he was gone. Once and a while, we see one flying around, and we say "It's Dinky!" We are all so excited about being able to witness the transformation. It was something we'll never forget.
