Did you know you can repair a butterfly's wing?

I had no idea, yet what a nice thing to do!

I loved this, thanks. Every year we collect a few monarch catapillars and watch them go through the change. It's quite a humbling experience. We had one whose wing didn't unfurl normally and it lived in the kitchen. It would come to my hand for nectar, fun to watch them eat. If I'd know I could have repaired the wing..... next time I will!
