It all happened a lot quicker than we expected.
After waiting for the butterfly’s wings to fill up with blood, we let it go late that afternoon.
This time we were a little smarter.
We put it on some flowers to try and stop it from flying straight over the fence like the last one.
This ended up being a fantastic idea and we could see it eat some nectar from the flowers. It was really amazing.
If you look closely at the picture on the right, you can see the butterfly using it’s proboscis to suck up the nectar!
