Butterfly house

It has been all go in the butterfly house this week and it has been so EXCITING.

On Monday we looked in the butterfly house and at first we couldn't see our budding caterpillars. Then we spotted a beautiful chrysalis hanging from the swan plan. Mr Barnes came along and told us to look up - and sure enough there were two caterpillars. One had stuck itself to the netting, the other had crawled all the way to the top of the wooden post and was sitting there.

On Tuesday the caterpillar on the net had turned into a chrysalis and the caterpillar on the wooden post was hanging in the letter J.

On Wednesday the caterpillar on the wooden post had created a chrysalis.
