A few weeks ago, some Falcons found a caterpillar at Forest School and it started a discussion about what type of butterfly it might grow into. I then promised to send off for some caterpillars that we could watch grow and then release together at school once they were butterflies. Well, the baby 🐛 arrived on 5th April…10 days later and they were huge! Yesterday (18th) they were attached to the top of the pot and ‘bouncing’ around. This morning, we noticed our first chrysalis. It could be up to 14 days before the first butterfly emerges, the the metamorphosis countdown is on! Can you use the ID chart to identify the butterfly that we will have?🦋
