My husband would confirm that I often exclaim, "LOOK!  There goes ___ with a butterfly net!"

I regularly say that a summer kid with a butterfly net in hand, sprinting to the location needing said net or meandering looking where to use the net are some of my most favorite parts of the summer.  I always stop in my tracks and take in that moment. All three of mine regularly use the butterfly nets and I just love it.

Today Adrian caught a White Admiral with his net and gently put it into the butterfly 'house'!  He's never caught one before and was most impressed I knew what it was without needing a field guide. 

It was a catch, admire, release, record it in the nature journal sort of moment. 

The underside markings are so detailed. 
Love my little nature lovers and the nature they find.
