Great family fun

We loved spending 15 minutes in the garden looking for butterflies. It was great fun and we saw a butterfly I’d never even heard of before. The app is really useful. Improvements would be showing a picture of a landed butterfly for every butterfly in the table- only a few show additional pictures to aid identification. Also, if the photos were relative in size to each other it also might help distinguish between different types of butterflies. All in all though educational great family fun.

Let’s get counting

Has certain insects start to die out we need to do what ever we can to save them. I’ve just started and changed everything on my terrace to help . Now this app great and a good way to count and see what butterflies enter the spaces you are. The only downside is when entering the details the pin isn’t easy to move so you loose your place. It be easier if you could found the location then tap and the pin moves to that location . Other then that it’s great fun .

Great to be a part of something so important

Am loving stopping for 15 mins a day and just sitting and watching nature-you can do the count wherever you are and whatever time of day just as long as you do it. I am finding it quite difficult to accurately record which butterflies I see as they are constantly fluttering but it is great to see when I get it right.. try it and see
