They are much tougher than we think! Be gentle and you will not harm the butterfly. Be persistent for a couple of minutes. If you have lowered its proboscis into the liquid several times and it chooses not to drink, give it an hour or two before trying again. Slowly move the object away from the butterfly.
If it stops drinking, repeat. Sometimes it will take several tries before it realizes that the liquid is food.
Let go of the butterfly. If it flies to the window, repeat the process. You simply have to be patient and overcome that instinct for it, if possible. If you hold the proboscis in the liquid, it will drink, whether it is doing it on purpose or not. There are several factors at work, causing the liquid to be drawn up, inside the proboscis.
