Can you be more specific of what you're looking for? To create the erratic up and down flight path you could apply noisy channel to the Y channel.

You're talking about the part where the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis? After looking at some youtube videos it looks like the wings just scale up. What's happening is the blood vessels are expanding. You could do that with a morph on the wings. If you needed more control you could have some free floating bones in the wing to get it to fold and collapse. All those bones are parented to a wing flapper bone so you can animate the wing flapping motion.
