      Yup! i like to go out with a net to fields or my back yard and catch insects to look at. I let them go when I am done. Its pretty easy to make your own net with an old pillow case, a wire hanger and a broom handle. just unbend the hanger and make a loop that you can attach the pillow case to. Tape it to the broom handle and go sweep up some beetles and butterflies
      I also have had insect pets including two praying mantises and a bunch of stick insects.

      I do watch tv shows, read, craft, cook and hang with friends in my free time. Insect related activities only take up about 5 percent of my free time.
