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 Β 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!
