Butterflies @ Rocking Horse Nursery

Yesterday the Investigators let their butterflies go in the Figgate Park. From the caterpillars arriving, the investigators observed the changes closely from little caterpillars, to chrysalis, to emerging butterflies and then beautiful butterflies ready to be set free. What a beautiful sight, watching the butterflies fly off in our favourite park.
