Our Hungry Caterpillar Grew Up!

With all of the lovely fresh veg that has been passing through our kitchen of late, it’s inevitable that a bug or two is going to visit too! 

A couple of weeks ago we noticed a little pupae on or kitchen window. The kids and I decided to keep it and see what came from it. We popped it into a ventilated tib and waited!!

Much excitement today as we woke up to an empty case and a little butterfly (cabbage white I think!? Although it does look quite green on the photo).

Releasing the little creature in the garden this morning was lots of fun  and fascinating for the kids to watch.

I’m pleased that I didn’t bother with one of the sets that you can purchase to watch the same process!

The wonder of nature!
