Had a monarch eclose this morning...been hanging for a few hours now, but one of the hindwings did not stretch out's still curled up a tad around the bottom edge. Will he still be able to fly?

A minor deformity, so just a bad hair day to a lep... it'll fly just fine.

Yep, she hung around for about an hour on my Lantana, then flittered away :)
