A Monarch butterfly emerges with it's proboscis divided into two strands. The butterfly will extend and recoil it's proboscis many times to combine the two sides into one piece. It will also stretch out its thorax and lengthen its wings into full size twisting on the chrysalis in the air. When the butterfly has formed into it's final shape, it will then hang dry its wings and release excess stored fluids it used for nutrients as a chrysalis. After the butterfly's wings are dry, it can fly away. This is a side view of the butterfly ready to start expanding its wings.
