Wesley Thompson wanted to teach his children about one of nature's most impressive feats: metamorphosis.

With assistance from his two children, Gunnar and Harley, the Thompsons helped a little caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly. Once their project had sprung wings, it was time to let the flier free. Luckily, the family decided to film the release.

Watch as (around the 30-second mark) the butterfly finds its way out of the box and right onto Gunnar's face. Perhaps the insect wanted to give the boy a few grateful kisses before departing on its journey?

Shocked and screaming at first, Gunnar soon accepts his temporary nose accessory and breaks out into a fit of giggles. After a moment, the butterfly is on its way with a heartfelt good bye from the entire Thompson clan.
