Newly emerged butterfly
My butterfly emerged yesterday but did not fly away. I was worried last night so I put it in a covered jar with some sugar water in a lid and a piece of bread to stand on. I soaked a small portion of the bread with the sugar solution. This morning it is still alive and flexing the wings, so should I take it outside when the sun gets warmer? I am in Hawaii.
Yes, I would take it outside and let it fly away. It sometimes takes a while for the wings to dry after it emerges and for the butterfly to fly.
