Butterfly and red clover and sun
For many years, the scientific way to collect butterflies was to catch them with a net, kill them and carefully mount them in climate controlled viewing boxes. I have seen some truly amazing collections of the incredibly varied insect population around the world.
However, I have no desire to kill and pin butterflies into a specimen display case. I'd rather try to get a decent photograph. Although my father and his twin brother were consummate butterfly collectors in their day, I'm sure both would welcome the ease with with a decent photograph can be taken with a cell phone.
