This is a great professional-quality butterfly net for practiced collectors as well as students! The soft collecting bag and extra-long handle make it suitable for catching the most delicate butterfly or other insect even at a distance. This net features a 13"-diameter, 30"-deep open-shaped net bag with muslin banding at the top, a rugged folding steel net ring, and a special aluminum handle that extends from 18" up to 40" long. The entire butterfly net folds and collapses to just 18" long and 5" wide to fit in any pack.
How to use: When trying to capture an individual butterfly with a net, move slowly until you are in range. Position the net under the insect, then swing it upward and turn the handle so that it flips over and the captured insect cannot escape. Bring the butterfly net down to the ground and raise the end of it so that the insect can fly to the closed top, making it easier to get into another container.
