The high quality crushable butterfly net has a spring steel frame which twists up, allowing the net to be collapsed and folded to a pocket size. The net is supplied with a short brass handle for general use, which can be extended by inserting a stick or piece of wood into the handle. The Guide to British Butterflies is an 8 page laminated fold out guide. Produced by the Field Studies Council, it features life size illustrations from original paintings by the renowned wildlife illustrator Richard Lewington. Over 60 common and rare species are illustrated, along with general information on biology and conservation. The free standing bug cage and bug box magnifying pot will allow you to securely study your butterfly before releasing it back into the wild.
