Few sights are more delightful than that of a butterfly dancing on the breeze. But sadly enough, butterflies have become all too rare in our rapidly expanding world. The sheer beauty of butterflies has, in the past, prompted the collection and sale of these insects. Twenty years ago this could have been blamed for their disappearance, but it is unusual in this day and age for a collector to capture and kill a butterfly. Most modern day collectors capture their beautiful specimens on film.
