    A butterfly has emerged but it’s small wing is folded and still attached to the cocoon. How can I safely help? Thanks.

    Thank you everyone I do appreciate the advice. It did seem to right itself and 7 more have emerged this week with no problems. Many thanks.

    A dry or if required damp cotton bud work well!

    Often a toothpick helps

    mist the wing with water to soften and gently peel off.
