[Rather Simple] How to fold an origami butterfly that flaps it’s wings when you pull the tail. This model borrows the action mechanism of the traditional flapping bird. The idea to design a pull-the-tail flapping butterfly was given to me by Andy Mangal (though I’ve probably attempted to do it before as evidenced by this video https://youtu.be/OTiXXo6pS48 which is also a pull-the-tail butterfly but looks more like a crane).
