How important the nettles in our gardens are, for they are the caterpillar's food. They enable it to grow strong enough to form a chrysalis and make the miraculous transformation into a butterfly. The main stages of the development of the peacock butterfly are accurately and charmingly described in rhyming verse by Daniel C Bryan and vividly illustrated by Angela Bryan.
