After a week of waiting the chrysalis begins to change. It’s green color begins to fade away leaving a thin plastic cover around the butterfly. When you can see the butterfly’s wings through the chrysalis that means it will emerge in a few hours! It uses its small legs to push the chrysalis “door” open. Once out it quickly pumps fluid through its wings.
In just a few hours the Queen butterfly’s wings are ready for flight. If you touch a butterfly’s wings before they are dry you could damage them. Releasing butterflies brings me such joy. I love watching them glide across the sky as if they were weightless. Butterflies are a wonderful gift from God.
