Anyway I had forgotten all about them well that is until two days ago as we noticed one hatching inside one of the bedrooms. It must have crawled through an open window during the summer but we hadn't noticed it.
Due to the unusually cold spring we are having in the UK none of the others have hatched yet as the temperature is too low outside. However because this one was in the house he has come out too early thinking it is warmer than it really is. I watched him in the window but as it was raining I didn't want to let him outside because he would just die either from the rain or cold so we left him in the house for a day and night.
|It refuses to get off my hand|
I hate seeing injured animals and even though I know it is nature I couldn't just put this butterfly outside and forget about him as for one there are hardly any flowers around to feed off, two it is still too cold and three it can't fly anywhere so it would just be sentencing him to death. Anyway he looks happy enough bathing in the sunset every night on my window ledge and we've researched food etc so yeah I now have a new pet.
