Some butterflies are more temperamental than others. Temperament is species dependent but it varies within individuals of a species also. Most of the Black Swallowtail butterflies I have raised have been on the calm side. This Black Swallowtail was very nervous and its wings, although only a couple minutes old, have already been open to flight position out of fear. Of course, it cannot fly away without first expanding and drying its wings.
