Relaxing 15 minutes
I love this app and the routine of just sitting outside or by a window for 15 minutes and watching for butterflies, it is so relaxing. For next year one thing I would like is perhaps identification photos for when the wings are closed too (I know you can find this on the online pdf but the app would be more convenient), as sometimes I only catch a glimpse of a butterfly and I feel that would help me identify them a little better.
Great to do this with children. Pictures for easy identification - if they stay still enough. Rule is that if you see 1 of a species 3 times you assume it is the same butterfly. I suspect that as they also do not often stay still enough to identify it might mean an under count overall. Nice to take part and nice to think the combined information might help their survival.
Great for family involvement
I had difficulty initially with the location. But this has improved. I would have liked to have pictures of closed wings as this was often the case. I agree with others, it's often problematic to identify as they are so fast and often disappear over the hedge. So often I have seen more than I can log.
