When I caught my first monarch, I accidently hit it with the net, cutting it's abdomen open. A yellow ooze came out, and I thought it was the end. I gently pushed the side, to get rid of the dried stuff. I put the monarch in a large cage, and put flowers and sugar water at the bottom. That night, the butterfly was motionless, I thought it was dead. I kept it in their, because it was dark and late. I woke up the next morning, and the butterfly was climbing around the cage, and the open wound was sealed shut! The butterfly did not try to fly, but I did not give up hope. I brought it outside, and it was a cold day, but I figured it would warm up. I tossed the butterfly in the air for an hour, and everytime the wind would blow, the butterfly would flap its wings, a little stronger each time. After an hour, the butterfly would flap its wings when it was on the ground, I thought it would take off. Unfortunetly, it stopped flapping, and layed their. Now I surely thought it was going to die. I put it on a clover, and let it stay their for 2 hours, I tagged it, and left. I came back when it was warmer, and I saw the butterfly walking from flower to flower. I tried the flying thing again, and it actually started to fly! After 15 minutes, the butterfly flew on it's own, and took off into the sun! I never got a response if anyone found it's tag, but it just goes to show, if you dont give up, miracles can happen!
