As part of our spring nature study, we've been watching caterpillars become butterflies. We purchased a kit from FlutterBuys, although next year we'll give it a go with wild-caught caterpillars.

We brought home our caterpillars on May 17, and all of them had become chrysalides 11 days later. Two days after the last caterpillar had become a chrysalis, we transferred them to their mesh cage. We're now waiting anxiously for our butterflies to emerge!

May 20, 3 days

May 22, 5 days

May 25, 8 days

May 30, 13 days
Ready to be moved to their new home!

This is what was left behind in the container; very interesting!
