From caterpillars to butterflies.

Today was a VERY exciting day in P3B. Our little caterpillars (all five of them) have emerged from their chrysalises as butterflies. We watched as their wings hardened and they started to move about. After a couple of hours we were able to give them food and fill their environment with some pretty flowers for them to explore.
We are hoping to release them tomorrow but have really enjoyed watching them grow from tiny caterpillars into beautiful butterflies.

It would appear that Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore and Voldemort were feeling a little self-conscious about coming out as they popped out quickly whenever we weren’t looking. Luckily Ms Dodds was able to catch one of her butterflies emerging so I will try to get the video for all to see!

Here are three of the butterflies (I’m not sure who exactly they are) having just emerged. If you look closely you can see that their wings have not fully formed yet. And one (I’m told it was Ron) was feeling a little sluggish. He came out about 2 hours later!
