Oops, the Butterfly Is NOT Dead

While mowing the lawn two days ago, I found an injured butterfly. Part of its wing was missing so it couldn't fly and it's body looked a little damaged, too. I made it a nice home in our big glass bowl and watched it. It didn't move much and today it didn't move at all, even when I touched it and moved it, though I thought I saw a leg twitch once. Guess I did, because a few hours later, after telling the girls that the butterfly was dead, it was opening and closing its wings!

How many lives to butterflies have?

Update: April 4
Our butterfly is now truly dead, but it lived seemingly happily in our big glass bowl, eating nectar from plum slices and exploring most of its habitat.
