* During the Boer War, one of Robert Baden-Powell's favourite cover stories when he was spying was as a butterfly collector. Not only did this seem so innocent to the Boers seeing this grown man chasing butterflies that they didn't realize that he only seemed to find ones around their fortifications interesting, but he could disguise his maps in the pictures of the ones he caught.

* One story of ''Manga/KurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'' has the gang try this as yet another attempt at getting out of their PerpetualPoverty (stag beetles apparently sell for a lot of money). Predictably, it leads to yet another corpse (with its eyes pecked out and apparently having fallen from a tree). The culprit this time was [[spoiler:a parasite that normally affects snails, causing their antennae to bulge out and climb high to attract passing birds so the parasite can reproduce).]]
