butterfly or moth? you decide

today i arrived at work to find that one butterfly had hatched. unfortunately, i didn't have my camera with me so you'll have to suffer through this picture i took with my phone. you can't tell by this picture because the color isn't quite right, but this "butterfly" is actually brown. now, it hasn't spread its wings yet so maybe it's all beautiful and colorful on the inside. but so far this butterfly looks pretty moth-like. i am wondering if we were given moths by mistake. supposedly, these are supposed to be painted lady butterflies, as shown below. but i think there is a distinct difference between the two. don't you agree? this will all go into the well-crafted letter that i will be writing to Butterfly Gifts when this project is over.

I think I see a patern of dissatisfaction here...I ordered from Butterfly Gifts too! And if you recall, mine all died and I was only shipped half. And we probably aren't the only ones that have been having trouble.

i am disgusted and disillusioned-- what kind of place is this Butterfly Gifts?! I would like to unleash my wrath upon them... a pox upon their house!

Your Mom is hilarious. Is she starting her own blog too?

Butterflies, moths- either way they're bugs. Vile, ugly, disgusting bugs!!!!!

But yeah, a letter is surely in order to this pseudo establishment.
