I brought the chrysalises to work today, since they became transparent overnight. The instructions said butterflies were likely to emerge between 6:30 and 11:30.
With a minute of each other at 11:00 they crawled out. Then they went through every stage one minute apart: pumping up the wings, splatting out the extra color, drying out the wings, first flap, first crawl, hanging upside down, first dive off the top of the cage.
Then, at about 6:00 pm they got out of sync and became two individuals again, just as they were when they were caterpillars.
At about 10:00 pm they were crawling next to each other and flexing their wings in each other's faces. They were battering each other with their wings. I had to walk away. I can't let them go free tonight because they can't fly yet.
I fully expect only one to be alive tomorrow morning.
