While you're observing your butterflies in the habitat, you might wonder what normal butterfly behavior looks like. You may observe them drinking nectar, climbing the walls of the habitat, and fluttering around briefly. Don't be alarmed if your butterflies seem inactive, it's common for your butterflies to be mostly quiet in the habitat. They are perfectly happy to rest with the food you are providing for them. When you release them, let them go on a sunny day so they can warm up their wings before flight. Though they may not have flown much around the habitat, they will be ready to go on release day!
