But if we count butterflies here, won't that cause floods in Brazil?

Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation will hold its 11th annual butterfly count from 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 9 at the farm, 817 W. Dupont Road.

Participants will learn how to identify butterflies and will be given nets to catch whatever they can. Finally, participants will tally the species they find.

Just wondering. And they're going to actually catch them, too, so maybe we ought to start preparing for the Rapture.

Do I have to wait for the DVD , and will it be in theaters in IMAX?

Leo, it's ok to count them, and even catch them, just don't step on one, ...

My wife and I just keep track of the various species that frequent our garden.
And we do all we can to ATTRACT them like having a butterfly bush (really brings em in), hibiscus, oregano (when it blooms), bee balm, and even hollyhocks.
A nice change of pace from the frenetic goings-on in the "Little Zimbabwe" part of SE Ft. Wayne.
I'll have to send some pictures along to you soon.
