Handle with care.
I found this little butterfly as she crash landed in my garden. Her wings was so badly damaged that she could not fly. As I carefully put my hand down in front of her, she climed on my thumb nail and stayed there.
Not knowing quite what to do, I sat her down on my lavender. I regulary checked if she was still there. Hoping that she magically had fixed her wings and flown away. But she didn’t. At evening I went out to check on her one last time… still there.
By now I felt really sorry for her, all defenseless. Should I let nature take it’s course?
I couldn’t, so once again I put my hand in front of her and she climed on and I took here inside. I got her a napkin and put her on a safe place. Well aware that she would not make through the night… and she didn’t. But at least she was dry, warm and safe for a while.
