Riversway Nursing Home, Bristol are creating life, in the form of beautiful butterflies by making homes for chrysalis to grow.
Children from a local nursery and residents from the home have been observing the chrysalis over the last week, housing them in small jars to create a safe habitat for them to grow in.
This week the silk which was formed around the chrysalis, has been carefully cleaned away and they now sit in a large net while everyone eagerly awaits their transformation into lady painted butterflies.
Lady painted butterflies are well known for their distinctive brown and orange colouring with white spots.
Residents, children and staff should expect to see the chrysalis transform into butterflies within the next two weeks.
