Butterflies and Binoculars

One of my daughters favorite things to do is go to the butterfly house at our local museum.  The place is fantastic. When the crowds are small (weekdays) you can sit on a park bench and have 1,2 or 3 butterflies land on different parts of your body - a truly wonderful experience for a 5 year old and her dad.

She and I went on an adventure recently to a local river.  While sitting on the shore a couple of beautiful yellow butterflies landed a few feet away from us.  She announced that she would be going over to them and have them climb on her hand.  No way.  Yes way.  She went over, put her hand on the ground and sure enough a butterfly popped onto her hand and stayed there for a few minutes.

This got me thinking, she has something for butterflies and I have wanted a good pair of binoculars.  In my search I found a cool site that talks about what else, butterflies and optics.  The NABA (National American Butterfly Association) recommends that you use lower power binoculars (7x or less) and that they have the ability to focus as close as your feet.
