Butterfly Rearing Stage 5 – Adult Butterfly By: Tanya Rothe

 

The 5th and final stage is the butterfly which came from the chrysalis in the previous stage.  Once the butterfly hatches out of the chrysalis it has called home and flutters its beautiful wings for the first time.  Once the chrysalis begins to crack, it is a very quick process, only 2-3 minutes before the butterfly emerges into the outdoors.  Because of it being cramped up in the cocoon, the wings are wrinkled up.  The wings are able to move them around and they stiffen up by adding fluid to its wings.  Once they are strong enough to fly you set them free but be careful not to hurt the butterfly especially their fragile wings during the release.

Now, is the best part of the entire life cycle, so make sure someone has a camera and you are ready for the experience of a lifetime.  Very gently scoop up the butterfly into your hand and bring out of the cage.  Now, if the butterfly is ready, it will gracefully set itself off into the world fluttering about.  They do not always fly away right away so if this happens, carefully sit them on a nearby plant monarch butterflies prefer milkweed plant; now enjoy their sight.  Remember a big part of butterfly rearing is to help expand the butterfly species just released.
