Wikipedia: Eugène  Le Moult

       Eugène  Le Moult  grew  up  in  the  French departement  on  the  AMAZON,  became  the world's  №1 butterfly-hunter  and  when  hunting  in  the  JUNGLE  would  sleep  in  tents  in  the  rainforest,  together  with  TRIBAL  guides  and CONVICT  helpers*  from  the  French  tropical  gulag,  constantly  threatened  by  jaguars,  snakes  and  scorpions.  E.LE MOULT  insisted  on  FUNCTION  in  his  CLOTHES...

  TINTIN Magazine №396 24th May 1956

         «People  think  that  hunting  butterflies  is  a  symbol  of  cute  nonchalance.  In  fact  it's  a  sport,  and  even  one  of  the  hardest.  In  France  this  would  mean  constant  walking,  climbing,  sprinting  or  long-distance  running.  In  the  tropics,  it's  the  same  thing,  plus  the  threat  of  wild  animals.»
