A close-up video of this little butterfly on the day it emerged. Can you see its long feelers and antenna moving? What colours can you see on it's wings?

Observing our Butterflies- Video 3

Still image for this video
After eating lots of fruit, sugar water, and bright pink flowers, this butterfly was ready to be released!
We took this video on 1/06/21, just before this little guy was released into our outdoor classroom. Notice the symmetrical pattern on its wings and the empty cocoon shell.
