Nursery have taken very good care of our 5 caterpillars. We observed them changing in to chrysalides and then emerging as beautiful butterflies. The children were caring for them by giving them sweet, sugary nectar to drink with their long, curled tongue! When they were ready, we released the butterflies in the back garden. Some of them flew off immediately, some of them stayed for a while and enjoyed having a rest on the children’s hands!
