My interest in butterflies began with the lawn ones. I watched the Peacock butterfly (Aglais io) basking in the sun on a hot day. I watched Large white (Pieris brassicae) and Common brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) hovering in the air. When I decided to learn more about these creatures, I started with the Internet. I read some interesting information about their biology, symbolism in different cultures, and whether they can be grown at home. Then I began to explore the darker aspects of our human relationship with butterflies. When browsing the internet, you can find tips on collecting butterflies. One can learn how to catch, kill butterflies, conserve them and display. Fortunately, there are questions and doubts about the legality and ethics of such practices. These are voices pointing to the fact that we are talking about a living creature, about a being that lived and wanted to be itself, not an exhibit.
