Butterfly eggs hatching

This week’s Macro Monday is a follow up to my post last week.

This is the same group of Large White Butterfly eggs on a Nasturtium leaf in a Hatherton, Cheshire garden. They are now starting to hatch. After eating their way out of the egg casing some of the young caterpillars turn around and eat more of the casing. The casing may contain nutrients or minerals that help the caterpillars develop.
