How wonderful that you rescued them and allowed them to fly free. I especially like the second photo. Well done, both on the rescue and photos!

seems like a mammoth task! How did you keep and feed them. They obviously turned into pupa. Your success rate is 44/50 which is 88 % and that is a great achievement. Congrats and thnx for sharing!
