but i am not sure there is anough meat on them to be farming them? take a bunch of the little buggers to make it worth firing up the grill

There's good sport in hunting 'em, and they don't spook easily so you usually get a few tries.

One year I went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History and they had a butterfly Expo there. All kinds of butterflies, but they have a very short life span like on the order of a few weeks. All of the buidlings that housed the exhibits had a negative air pressure to prevent the butterfilies(some that were non-native to the area) from escaping because butterflies are essentially moths.

My wife raised butterflies for our wedding. She had a whole refrigerator full of 'em. They made cacoons inside these silver cardboard pyramid things with ribbon holding them together. When we came outside instead of everyone throwing rice, they opened the pyramids, and the butterflies flew for the first time into the sky. It was absolutely beautiful.

Ahem, not that I'm into that kind of stuff...

Yeah but can you herd them yet.

That is cool. I use to get 10-20 monarchs on my dill and fennel each year. I would never kill them because they where just too cool to watch.
