Small White - Day 12 - Butterfly no. 5 Emerges - Video

Finally, I have managed to capture a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis!!



Unfortunately this poor little fella ended up being deformed, having only half a wing on one side. When I released him I walked down the road with him cupped in my hands until we got to a huge patch of thistles (a small white favourite). I placed him on the plant and he strolled about on the plant. I'm sure he didn't last too long, but I did my best!
