Off-topic discussions. Be nice. No politics/religions/insults (as on the rest of the forum).

No patent pending

Post by kevinkk »

So,
on the way back from our last overnight trip, a semi-successful trip where the propane heater came in very handy, we stopped at a
nice roadside spot where Papilios and other butterflies were patrolling the area along a little creek and tree line.
I have some nice captures that might deserve some exposure. In the meantime however, while butterflies were, I think the term is
"kicking our butts" my days of chasing down anything are long gone, I realized what we needed- rotating chairs with cup holders and
net holders, kind of like the chairs used on fishing boats (I almost said fishermen), I noticed right away, the butterflies often come
from the opposite direction one is looking.

Not bad- I think swing accuracy is one of the main issues, and if you have the arm strength, a larger net could be helpful, depending on
your proximity to sticky vegetation. I think I'm going to be looking for that rotating chair, not long ago I had several barstools I disposed
of for a customer, if only I'd had an unlimited storage capacity, I could have repurposed them after cutting down the legs- alas, not all
of other people's trash can be saved.
