Re: Butterflies

Re: Butterflies

Same question. I have my bil here who used to do it in the 50s and 60s - but he has moved on to photographing them - a lot better for all involved.

This reminds me of the John Fowles novel, The Collector. Not good ...

Re: Butterflies

Probably not allowed anyway... How would you be sure they weren't nearly extinct ones...
Trying to get a good "shot" with a camera is much more satisfying for your hunter/killer instincts! It takes a bit of skill and patience too.

It looks as though you have your answer. In any case, if you are hoping to embark on a scientific project, I assume that whoever is sponsoring you would have the relevant information.

If you collect some not so rare ones, it doesnīt really matter if you collect them, itīs not going to affect on population at all

Personally I think it's revolting to pin butterflies. And what exact scientific meaning has this?

We are not speaking about the chimps in labs.

Re: Butterflies

Swiss butterflies have all been recorded already- and the information is available for you to study, I'm sure.

I kill flies for pleasure.

What's the difference, apart from sentimentality?

Butterflies are beautiful and don't potentially spread disease.

They're still bugs, objectively speaking.

Is our condemnation of TheAndy's hobby merely aesthetic, or is there a moral element to it?

It's a gateway hobby. Butterflies now, White Rhinos next.

Seriously, no need to kill anything. Life is life. Am barely over my veggy days. Killing to live is one thing, killing needlessly, why ?
