Bug Hunting in Fiordland

Bug hunting was on the agenda today, so down to the pines we wandered.  In a log we found a huhu grub that was beginning to change into a beetle.  It was all white and hardly moved the whole time we studied it.  The children were amazed to find that it was changing without being a cocoon like a caterpillar.  Next someone found an interesting white bug that had us searching our insect books, we still don't know what type of bug it is so more research will have be done at Kindergarten!!  Back to the shed and there were still more bugs to find. No log or piece of wood was left unturned.  What an exciting day.
