Butterfly Observations Field Journal
Butterfly Observation is one of the oldest and most enjoyable hobbies.
Butterfly collecting was once part of that hobby. It was not unusual to see Victorian ladies and gentleman happily chasing butterflies with special nets.
Today, we still appreciate the fragile beauty of butterflies, while understanding their importance in the garden. Observing is much better than actual collecting.

Sighting List pages provide you with a running record of each butterfly and phase you observe. The novice and experienced butterfly observer will enjoy the page format and convenient size of this field journal. It would make a perfect gift for the butterfly observer in your life.
Write your observations in your journal as soon as possible, while they are fresh in your memory. As you become more experienced, referring back to your observation notes will help you to understand what you missed and want to look for in the future.
It is important to record dates, location, and the weather. Note the phase of the life cycle. Record the butterfly’s habitat, behavior, and appearance. Draw or sketch the butterfly, even if you do not consider yourself an artist, you can capture small details.
Your Butterfly Observations Field Journal will become a favorite record that you will refer to often as you engage in this life-long pursuit.
