Caterpillars and butterflies! (or moths)


 Me and two of my sisters have been collecting caterpillars over the past 4 days. Although none of them have pupated yet,  it is still early days, and at least they are all still alive! (One of them nearly drowned when we first set up their little habitat...whoops!). Here are some photos of them:

When they emerge from their chrysalis they will be cinnabar moths; a colourful daytime moth.
