Thank you so much! I love butterflies! (I'm sure Victor is pleased. hahaha) I'm very happy when I catch them, though I like releasing butterflies, not... doing the things to them that I have to do for my class. >>;
He is -- especially since I'm honestly a little afraid of anything with the potential of flying at my face. And he strongly agrees with you on that. He knows they're necessary for study, but he's never been able to start a bug box or the like.
Aww! That's why you catch and observe them, maybe even sketch them, and then let them fly away and hope they don't fly back AT you. I've had that happen. Butterflies may look all innocent but they can be pretty evil.
LOL, yeah -- I've had too many suddenly take a left turn straight at my face. (And don't get me started about the moths that get into my room.) Victor's all in favor of the "catch, observe, draw, release" program, though.
