What's inside the pupa??
A few weeks ago, Endre & Eirin found a pupa on the ground when they were playing in the forest. We took it with us in and put it in a box. Hoping something would come out of it ;)
And it did. One morning after the older kids was off to school and just Endre and I were home, we heard a strange noise in the kitchen. After a while we found out that the noise came from the box. And we could see that something was cutting it's way out of the pupa! The kids had hoped for a butterfly, but instead it was a huge fly! I have no idea what kind of fly it is, but I think it might be the same kind as we saw last summer.
*Note to self: We really need a good insect/bug book!
We gave it some strawberry and we could really see him/her eating on it. Endre thought it was very cool :)
