Butterfly life cycle

We have enjoyed watching our caterpillars eating their food and getting bigger and bigger day by day.

We were excited to see that on Tuesday, one of our caterpillars had begun to make its chrysalis and were fascinated with how it looks.

Over the next couple of days, the other caterpillars have followed suit and have too now turned from caterpillar into a chrysalis.

Today we saw the final caterpillar now transformed into a chrysalis and do it was time to move them into their new home. The butterfly net.

Now safe in the net, we wait for 7-10 days for the next stage in the life cycle....emerging as beautiful painted lady butterflies.....
