The time has just passed. 40 years ago I collected moths and butterflies. I still have these with me. Each butterfly and moth has a small piece of paper indicating where and when I caught them. I also remember visiting one major collector who had a large collection. He did his collecting trips to the USSR in summers. Well, this was in the beginning of the 1980’s. The USSR does not exist any longer. It was a nice hobby for a 14-years old teenager.
My ex wife liked to collect butterflies.
