Monarch Release Question
Releasing Monarch Butterfly on Flower
I have a question,okay maybe more than one. How specifically do you go about releasing Monarch butterflies. How long do you wait after they emerge? Do you put them on a flower they like and they will fly when they are ready or just take them out on your hand and they just fly away?
You should wait a couple of hours for the wings to dry after they emerge. Then just put your finger under their "legs" and they will walk onto your finger. Walk outside and either you can just let them stay on your finger and observe them until they are ready to fly or hold them next to a pretty flower and they will hop on it. This is a great time to get some beautiful pictures of your Monarch butterfly because usually they stay on the flower for a while!
