Jasmine's day at the Carden Alvar Butterfly Count
My name is Jasmine and this summer I went to the Carden Alvar Annual Butterfly Count in Kirkfield, Ontario.
I counted butterflies with my mom and Aunty Mary. I caught an eastern comma butterfly in my net. I caught three butterflies, my mom and Aunty Mary both caught two. We looked at each butterfly, identified them and let them go.
I learned the difference between a moth and a butterfly. A butterfly has small balls at the end of its antennae and a moth's antennae are feathery.
We walked in a meadow and in a forest looking for butterflies. I met Laura and Marie. They showed me how to catch butterflies in my net and how to let them go so they aren't hurt.
We had a picnic and it was a fun day.
