Such summer entertainment, like catching butterflies, can hardly be called humane.
Any touch to the butterfly traumatizes it, especially its wings.
Do not catch butterflies just like that, unless it's related to the need to study insects.
Probably many people were trying to catch butterflies. Run in the summer on a hot meadow, cover the net with a bright butterfly, carefully take it by the wings - touch this way to nature. But is it good?
There are people who are engaged in butterflies and othersInsects professionally. They are called entomologists. Such specialists know how to properly handle fragile creatures. Entomologists sometimes catch butterflies to make a collection necessary for studying different species. But scientists will never catch insects for fun.
You can see the collection of butterflies, for example, inMuseums of local lore. Look closely at the wings. They are covered with tiny scales. It is thanks to the scales that the coloring of butterflies is so elegant and iridescent.
If a live butterfly is unceremoniously taking fingers withWings, then on hands there will be a multi-colored pollen. These are scales with wings. Injured butterfly is more difficult to fly. She, most likely, will live less than she could, or even almost immediately die.
The age of butterflies in general is very short. Some live only a few hours, they are called "one-day". Others live longer. There are butterflies that are able to winter. But anyway, the life cycle of these insects is not long.
In nature, everything is interconnected and balanced. If suddenly there are fewer butterflies, the feed of birds that feed on insects will be inferior. There will be fewer birds - pests will be explored in the forests and fields.
It is not worthwhile for the sake of a second triumph to break something that can please the eye and the heart again and again. Protecting nature, a person builds his prosperous future.
