Day Eight - The Big (Careful) Clean

Unfortunately small tortoiseshell number 3 has not turned into a pupa, I think something must have gone wrong, but he did seem a little smaller than the others and not quite as active. But 3 out of 4 larva to pupa is not bad for our first attempt!!

OK so today is the day! I need to have a good clean out, take out all the nettles and brambles that no-one is attached to and change the water in the tub at the bottom of the bowl that is keeping the plants alive. On go the gloves!!
