Boys like bugs. I didn't pay much attention to insects before, but now that I have two little boys I find myself watching around for interesting bugs
I used to avoid bugs, but now often when I find one I will find myself trying to catch it to show it to them (especially if it's harmless). Here is a ladybug that I showed my boys as it crawled all over my hands (and theirs).
It was fun to watch Jonah giggle and squirm when it was his turn to hold the ladybug and it crawled around on his hands. When we were done watching the ladybug we gave him a new home on Mommy's flowers.
Of course I don't try to capture the "dangerous" bugs... except with my camera, of course.
