Caterpillars and pupae, Stratford Butterfly Farm

Caterpillar, Stratford Butterfly Farm

As part of their conservation work on tropical butterflies, the Stratford on Avon Butterfly Farm have a breeding programme. One room showcases this work, and has a few of the caterpillars on their food plants.

The pair of what look like they might be pupae (aka cocoons) were on the underside of one of the leaves of a banana plant in the big hothouse room.
