ETA: Many people have emailed me to ask about Flopper pictured in the post.

We saw Flopper in our yard and it was apparent he had a damaged wing from something. A bird or a praying mantis probably. He was able to fly, but not easily, flopping around. We have a butterfly garden, so he was hanging out in it.

We read on the internet that you can repair the wing by cutting the other one to match the injured one. It creates the balance they need to fly. But we couldn’t catch him. Every day we tried, but we needed a butterfly net. He was in our garden until migration time and we were concerned he would never be able to make the migration. I tried to catch him and was planning on overwintering him if I had to. One day I didn’t see him at all. Did a bird or a mantis get him? I can only hope he tried to make it down south.

Like many birds, butterflies like Flopper migrate and return to their place of birth every year, mate and create new generations in their place of birth.

We hope to see a butterfly flopping about in the spring, and if we do, we will be ready with the butterfly net to try to restore his wing. Say a prayer and send any tips you might have for us that can help him.
